Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sisters of Mercy (Leonard Cohen)
Subject: RE: leonard cohen sisters of mercy
Yes Russ, like you I heard it first in '67. (Edinburgh Uni) I wonder if we were more tender then than young people today? I remember mooching about in a dreamy fashion to all sorts of lovely folk songs eg the Curragh of Kildare, My Love is Like a Red Red Rose, Suzanne (Leonard Cohen again). But we also laughed like drains at Tom Lehrer's Vatican Rag (remember that?) Do you think we were different in those days to youth today, more naive perhaps?
