Nice. I prefer the Judy Collins version, but then I'm a fan.
The Boomers (I'm too old) screwed up a lot of stuff, but they produced good music. Not so much today.
I've heard that song for years and despite my active imagination I've never made any sense of it.
But that applies to every thing I've ever heard out of Leonard Cohen and on that basis alone I can't understand why Joni Mitchell would screw him.
He must have had a heavy rap when the bong was being passed around.
Bob, I'm with you (also too old to be a Boomer). This and McCartny"s "In My Life" were my two favorite songs written in the '60s. And they're both on the same Judy Collins CD.
Jack: I think way back in Gerard's blog there is a post @ Suzanne. She's a real hippy gal that LC knew, iirc. Really good story and straightens this song out for you.
Don't we all have that one unobtainable one whom we just barely touched?
LC is a space cadet, but he makes good music.
Boomers get a bad rap (I'm one). Deservedly so, but in the really long memory history may redeem us.
Nah. Probably not.
Christ, that's depressing. Still.
I love Nick, but in this case Leonard did it better.
Far too much of the background singers. It's like they'd never sung the song before. In high school 70's, I liked Neil Diamond's version.
