Leonard Cohen has died at 82


Recommended Posts

I think Buckley's version is remarkable. The greatness of the tune and the lyrics is shown by how many singers have covered the song. Among the unusual and wonderful covers is by Ari Hest. VWL and I had a discussion of this subject because I wrote in one of my stories that Antony Hegarty (now known as ANOHNI) had recorded it; this was a subtle suggestion, because although I wished that he (at the point I wrote, she used the pronoun, he) had; to this point she has not. Of all that he wrote, "Night Comes On" and "Bird on a Wire" are my favorites.
