Tower Of Song
One of my favourite singers is Canadian born Leonard Cohen. His rich, deep, gravelly voice gets me right there. Not forgetting his poetry. Song like So Long Marianne, Hallelujah, and First We Take Manhattan. I actually didn't really know that much about him until an old neighbour of mine lent me some of his CDs in about 1992 after he said that he had seen Leonard in concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Don't worry, I gave them back!
I'm afraid that Gail doesn't share my appreciation of his style of singing. She somehow finds it depressing. So I have to have him on the turntable when she's not around and so I can sing along. All together now..
