We asked a Question “What is your Leonard Cohen Song”
and Based upon this question The result of the poll shaped like this list below
20- The Old Revolution
I fought in the old revolution
on the side of the ghost and the King.
Of course I was very young
and I thought that we were winning;
I can’t pretend I still feel very much like singing
as they carry the bodies away.
19- Love itself
I’ll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then Love Itself
Love Itself was gone.
18- Take this Waltz
“Take This Waltz” is a song by Canadian artist musician Leonard Cohen, initially released as a component of the 1986 Federico García Lorca tribute collection Poet in New York (Poeta en Nueva York) ] and as a single.
16- Joan of Arc
It was deep into his fiery heart
he took the dust of Joan of Arc,
and then she clearly understood
if he was fire, oh then she must be wood.
I saw her wince, I saw her cry,
I saw the glory in her eye.
Myself I long for love and light,
but must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?
15- The Stranger Song
The verses depend on a poem he had already composed. He recognized in a 1992 meeting with Paul Zollo that his “chop”, his exceptional example of playing traditional guitar, is behind large portions of his initial melodies, and this one components Cohen’s trademark quick, syncopated established guitar design as the backup on the recording of the tune
13- Seems So Long Ago , Nancy
12- A Thousand Kisses Deep
And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.
