Leonard Cohen and this year’s music losses

Oh, Leonard Cohen. How can you pass away on us, especially this year? If you’ve ever heard the cover ‘Hallelujah’, you NEED to listen to his version, the original one. It’s haunting and you can listen to it here.

I grew up on this kind of music and my love of songs you can sing along with or belt in the car knows absolutely no bounds. I love the depth of his voice and how no matter who sings it, the lyrics just seem to pierce into your soul. Absolutely love it when a song can do that over and over again, time and time again.

This year has been rough on the music industry as well as the arts in general. We’ve lost Prince, David Bowie, and now Leonard Cohen. It’s such a buzzkill! But in other news, we are getting so close to Christmas! Who all is in holiday mood? I know I am. Now if only I could figure out what to get for everybody on my gift list……
