As if this week hadn’t been bad enough already, I woke up to the news that we lost another poet/musician in the form of Leonard Cohen. I’ve listened to him over many decades and I thought I’d share one of my favourites with you in celebration of his life and work.

And here is the wonderful John Cale’s peerless reinvention of Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – a version of great genius and intensity that unfortunately spawned a million rubbish copies…

Be at peace Leonard.
