Everybody Knows Leonard Cohen

German food is great. But if you have a big German meal at 6 PM you’re hungry again six weeks later. That old line fits Leonard Cohen. The guy is great–really great–but I always find that listening to his music is a bit too much. It’s more like reading a rewarding but difficult novel than listening to music. But it’s worthwhile. The guy is an incredible song writer. A perfect example is “Everybody Knows,” which is above.

Here are I’m Your Man, First We Take Manhattan and his big hit, Suzanne.
