mauvepink Leonard Cohen Depressing? (51* d) RE: Leonard Cohen Depressing? 10 Dec 10

Totally talented and iconically inspirational

Cohen touches parts other songs don't reach...

or at least not in any similar way.

I have a kind of thought about serious actors doing comedy. They can't. Whereas comedians can do serious. In singing I think if you cannot do thought provoking - not necessarily depressing - then you cannot write. When you look at some of the best songwriters you can just see how they manage to get inside of you. You can see it but maybe not define it or find it tangible. It's effects certainly are though. I need to be reached in to. Cohen does that in oodles

Everybody knows....
