Sweet and Gruff: Listen to Leonard Cohen’s “Did I Ever Love You?”

Oct 23rd, 2014 in Music


We often think we can do him justice with our mealy-mouthed words.  And then we throw up our hands ’cause nobody can do Leonard Cohen justice.  Now that he’s at the age of 80, his songs have moved us for 47 years since his debut album came out in 1967.  A scant 47 years of the rarest musical intelligentsia.  Shows how old you can be.  As we wrote previously, Cohen has just released his new album Popular Problems.  The song below confirms his virulence at that age.  Long live Leonard Cohen!  Aurally it smacks of Tom Waits and a few gifted angels.  Long live Leonard Cohen!
