I Can't Forget, But I Don't Remember What

An old friend and loyal reader misses the old days on Camels With Hammers when I regularly posted about music—even going so far as to get 70 or so entries into what was supposed to be a yearlong daily top 365 artists countdown at one point.

So, when I discovered this cool old Leonard Cohen song just now, I figured I’d go ahead and blog it:

    Leonard Cohen is always appropriate. Not sure if he’s ever deep or fraught or whatever, but he ALWAYS sounds as if he’s giving you the secrets of the universe. That’s usually good enough for me.

    Leonard Cohen is the best. He just puts things… just… so.

    Thanks for posting this. It truly made my night.

    Thanks Dan!

    I love Leonard Cohen and I may pick up tickets to see him in December at MSG or the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
