I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Sad to see him go. Unique is an overused word nowadays, but he truly was unique, and perhaps a bit of an acquired taste. I grew up listening to his songs, which, although mostly dark and usually sad, I've always found to be evocative and strangely uplifting.

I remember reading that Bob Dylan described Cohen, and I paraphrase, in these words: "I'm number zero, but Cohen is number one."

I hadn't thought of him in over 30 years [I used to sell his albums - a LONG, LONG time ago !]

So weird, that last week, I read a long article about him in the Newyorker:

"Marianne" died recently, and I read an article where he discussed this, and he was saying he wouldn't be far behind. I saw him perform a few years ago, a very talented human being.

Yes, in that Newyorker article.

His last recording came out on the date of his 82nd birthday.
