I like one but I can't remember the name, it goes something like this:

"Lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, come back to me
I said, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, come back to me."

I think that's the chorus. I like it :)

-shock-!- Yay, someone else actually likes him! ~~<3
I love his music.. it's so well written, and inspirational. I have two of his albums.. I think one is just a compilation, and the other is a proper album.. though, I forget the name.

Did you know, that he doesn't even own the rights to 'Suzanne'? Weird thing is, that he's not even bothered. Apparently he doesn't need credit for a song that drunken men sing. o_O;; I'd be fuming, if I didn't have the rights to such a lovely song..

His voice is rather uhh...swoonable. If those songs were sung by anyone else, I think they'd lose their meaning. He puts them across so brilliantly.

Mine, too.. he actually describes his own song as something that drunken men sing. o_O;; I have no idea why.

I like his whole image, though... he was well known for crying on stage, in one of his earlier gigs.

-hands him many tissues- Wonder if it's downloadable.. -flounces off to search-

I do like Leonard Cohen. I heard that Marianne Ihlen, the Marianne that Leonard wrote 'So Long Marianne' about, just recently passed away. One of my favourites is Suzanne, and I like the live duet of this song he does with Judy Collins...
