Regramming myself and an old pic of me and a sullen looking Mr Leonard Cohen, on what would have been his 83rd birthday today, had it not been for his unfortunate passing last year.
His debut album "Songs of Leonard Cohen" from 1967 is one of my favourite albums by him. His back story as a poet and novelist are apparent as lyricism and story telling is at the forefront ("You held on to me like I was a crucifix" is an AMAZING line), but he also expresses a keen sense of melody. The sparse instrumentation perfectly compliments his deep sort of talking, whispery singing voice. It's a folk, country, rock and pop mixture. "So Long, Marianne" is a perfect example of this, and its both soothing and lilting.
In all its beauty though, it feels somewhat sorrowful and full of despair, maybe a reflection of how Cohen felt lost both personally and professionally at the time. Turns out he made a good choice and we as listeners will be forever thankful for it. Gone, but not forgotten.
