Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) – Thanks for the dance

 

Many songs of the Canadian poet and singer Leonard Cohen (1934 Quebec – 2016 Los Angeles) carry scents of perfection, like those composed during his 1960s stay in the beautiful little Saronic island of Hydra, Greece (cf. link), those of his comeback to mass success in 1984-92 or those of the 2001-2016 period, when Cohen was 67 to 82 years old. His discography of 15 studio albums includes the post-mortem LP ‘Thanks for the dance‘ (2019).
