'The Bard Of The Boudoir'

Leonard Cohen.  The cult singer-songwriter who started his career on the fringe of Andy Warhol’s Factory, listening to Nico sing  from the dark corner of  club. Best friend to Joni Mitchell,  my obsession.  Though quite depressing at times, I love his music and lyrics in the same way that sometimes I enjoy walking through the fog, if that makes any sense. ‘I’m your man’, 'Bird on a wire' and ‘Suzzanne’ being my favorites.  If you’re ever really sad, listen to his low lullying voice and it will make you…well…more sad…but in the most satisfying way possible. He’s the man.
