Our Heroes

A man and his cap

Leonard Cohen has been one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time, a figure whose body of work achieves greater depths of mystery and meaning as time goes on.

The power of his songs has no parallels in their beauty and range. He has relentlessly examined the largest issues in human lives, and although the answers for common mortals like us are mostly not clear, we travel with him in his personal journey, still looking for Suzanne, going deep down into the human essence.
To be able just to rub the edge of his mantle, is a everlasting pleasure and one of the reasons why his songs never lose their overwhelming emotional force.
"And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind."

Leonard Cohen, letras de amores declarados, irônicos, bem e mal sucedidos, paixões. Texto muito bom e ótima lembrança.

Depois de passar por Nick Drake e Cohen acho que vc está perto de Nick Cave, não?

Saí daqui e fui visitar Amélie e vi que ontem rolou Nick Cave e que vc, realmente, gosta muito dele.

Oi Patty,

O Cohen como letrista é gênio, não se discute e os Nick também são fundamentais, garantia de boa música.

Como vês, estamos em sintonia. :)
