Nice GB! I love the music.

Here is a long time favorite of mine. She's amazing on the violin.

my favorite things in the world--books, music and food are all here at this wonderful forum, spread out like a lavish banquet or smorgasbord (with an open bar) with an invitation to freely explore and partake as each one pleases....

My pleasure, Vit! I love the Leonard Cohen song I picked and I get derailed at You Tube all the time...mostly by cute kitty vids...

i fell in love with leonard cohen's mind, body and soul in the late 60s. i listened to little else for a solid year. for those who ask if god is capable of creating a rock he cannot lift, one needs only listen to hallelujah one time.
i love cohen's rendition of halelujah. though many disparaging things have been said about his monotonal voice, i have always been mesmerized by it. and him--still sexy at 78!

There is more feeling in his "monotone" voice than most people will ever feel in a lifetime.
