8. The Wizard Of Words

I believe the very first song I ever heard from Leonard Cohen was Avalanche from the album Songs Of Love And Hate. This song begins with the following words:

Well I stepped into an avalanche

It covered up my soul

With just two sentences he grabs you by the balls and takes you on a journey filled with compelling lyrics and imagery landscapes.

The strings fade in and out gently while his voice acts like the conductor of the song.

Leonard Cohen is a true wizard who could put a spell on you with his words: You’ll have to shut up, sit down and listen.

I had no choice… I surrendered.

No more stories of Suzanne.

No more paying rent in the Tower Of Song.

No more Hallelujah.

So long, Mr. Cohen!

Till next,



You want it darker…Hineni…I’m ready my Lord.
