  6. Thank you all for yoru kind comments.

    Mrs Ott, 'was'? :-) No, don't kill him yet, dear. The guy might be in 70s, but the concerts he gave in the UK this year have been voted unanimously as the musical highlight of 2008.

  8. Hahaha! Garri, nobody wants to win the bloody Premiership this year, man.

    And, by the way, have people noticed that 'Hallelujah' is a song with sexual content in it? Just a thought. Keep well, man.

  9. of course it is full of sexual content!
    that's what makes it better.
    but wait, isn't "various positions" the name of cohen's album?
    it's only fitting, i guess.
    just kidding.
    great, great song whoever covers it.
    bob dylan would have loved to write the all of the song himself.
    nice post, man!
    you rock.

  14. 'Hallelujah', una celebracion al dolor , a ese viaje de ida sin retorno, cuando las penas son tantas que nos atropellan... a nosotros los cubiches por lo regular nos baja el santo en forma de son, pero hay a veces tambien que se nos aparece en forma de Leonard Cohen, o de esta otra que es mi respuesta en forma de media solidaria: Nirvana - Pennyroyal Tea (Unplugged In New York)

    nos pillamos, tony.

  15. Gracias, betty y asere. A nosotros los cubanos las penas las ahogamos con un buen bolero. Y eso vendra, vendra en algunas semanas.

  16. Ciao Cuban,

    bellissima canzone.
    Questa e´ una che mi piace molto.

    Alcuni dicono che seguono un genere di musica, lo dicevo pure io da giovanissimo. Invece ci si rende conto che se si segue un genere solo, ci si perde molta magia nell'universo musicale.

    Un saluto prenatalizio da Colonia Cuban,

    Salva

  18. A man after my own heart, you are. I adore Leonard Cohen. I did a tribute post in March when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an honor that was long overdue, in my opinion.

    I never tire of this gorgeous song. I've listened to many (many) covers of it, but Rufus's version - as well as K. D. Lang's - is stunning.

    Thanks for dropping by my place. Pleasure to meet you.
