An unprecedented Bohemian sound



That legendary jolly person, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen is 80 years old today.

Although I do acknowledge that his writing has a poetic touch, in general (in a similar vein to those written by the Beatles or Bruce Springsteen) I tend to prefer his songs covered by other artists.

Imagine my joy when I found this fantastic version of Mr Cohen's Dance me to the End of Love by a band from Amsterdam - Zorita, who describe themselves thus: "...a raucous rousing rabble. This well-oiled ragtag collection of instruments, styles and personalities boasts an unprecedented Bohemian sound."

It's fab!

  2. I really enjoy Leonard's music in general - looking forward to his new album actually.
    Happy (gulp - 80th!) birthday!

    1. I have never even contemplated purchasing anything by him. He depresses me too much. Jx
