  • I've played Hallelujah LOTS of times in weddings, but some time ago in one of those ceremonies, I just took some time to hear how beautiful this song is. Cohen was, for sure, a very gifted man.

  • I think to make this question better, the rule should be that it can't be 'Hallelujah'.

    • 24d

      Does that mean that is your favorite song,?

    • 24d

      No, it means that if I saw two dozen replies saying 'Hallelujah', this would be a really boring thread. However, judging from how things are starting, I see that there was no such risk!

  • It wasn't really my generation but I remember my father had one of his records (and it was an actual vinyl record) and he'd play it and I would say it sounded like music to slash your wrists by.

  • I used to have to endure Leonard Cohen on car trips when I was little. "First We Take Manhattan" is the one that sticks in my mind.
