I’m only a casual Leonard Cohen fan, I hear songs, I like them. But the ones I like usually rapidly move to songs I love. Here, in no particular order, are my favorite Leonard Cohen songs.
This ones for you Lance.
While we’re on the subject, here’s one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs.
Sometimes when I listen to Suzanne I have to remind myself that someone wrote this song. That is, it didn’t just spring up from nowhere or always exist. But every time I listen to it I’m impressed. It’s beautifully written. Which isn’t hard to say — it’s a classic, right? — but still, it’s beautifully written.
