51. Leonard Cohen – I’m your man

It is hard to believe that Leonard is 80 years old. I went to see him again last year and he did a really long three hour show, had an amazingly talented band and sang as good as I’ve ever heard him. The fact that the show was three hours demonstrates the number of quality songs he has written over the years.

Some people find him depressing and seem to think his songs are almost suicidal. I can’t understand that because I find such a range of emotions there. A lot of them are very tongue in cheek, celebrations of love or quite droll and ironic humour while others have a serious side. Whatever it is the lyrics are special. Leonard has a way with words.

This album is a favourite of mine…
