Grins and giggles with the Prince of Pessimism, smilin’ Leonard Cohen

Here at Shalblog Industries®, we generally strive to keep an upbeat tone. However, every once in a while we indulge in a darker mood. But not to worry, soon it will be a whole brand new year, and the little midget from Annie will be belting out “Tomorrow” yet again.
Leonard Cohen, with a song more prescient than even he could know, back in 1992 when he wrote “The Future.”

Leonard Cohen and Judy Collins singing Cohen’s “Hey That’s No Way to Say Good-Bye.” I like this version better than either of each artist’s solo take because of the beautiful harmony here by Judy Collins.

It’s rare that I think a cover is better than the original, but this performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On The Wire” is stunning. It is sung by Esther Ofarim, an Israeli singer, new to me, who has long followed Cohen’s music. For me, this is even better than Judy Collins’s version.
