Fabulous Leonard Concert On CBC TV Right Now!!!!
April 1, 2009 7:24pm CST
8-9 PM EST Wednesday April 1st. This is no April Fools joke. My husband and I are watching the concert right now. I love Leonard Cohen. I have very sensitive hearing, and can't stand a lot of noise and background, so his low voice, and soft instruments are absolutely WONDERFUL. I can listen to his stuff on big speakers turned up full blast. I can't do that with a lot of music without splitting my own eardrums. Anyone else watching the Live In London concert on CBC? Anyone know if this concert is available on DVD somewhere?

I've seen more concerts than most people. I have traveled the world for the sake of singers, and publications for which I worked sent me here and elsewhere to watch, listen. With hand on my heart torn by emotions will say, however, have never seen something so perfect in life. And that means either that we have not lived enough, or that, indeed, Leonard Cohen's concert in Bucharest was a miracle that I was lucky enough to attend. Generosity is an attribute of great men. Great talent, noble souls are required, open to others, bowed respectfully to others. And maybe that's wonderful gentleness Leonard Cohen is just what makes his unique concerts. No lyrics. Although lyrics are the most beautiful on earth. ("Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on year on, / Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long, / We're Both of us beneath our love of, we're also Above Both of us / me to Dance the end of love ... "" I tried to leave you, I do not deny / I closed the book on us at Least a Hundred Times ") No music. Although I never heard so much harmony, so much sadness, so light, so the vibration of the soul and voice notes. No lights. Although everything on stage is delicate grace and flow of color. But the way they present their claims and musicians. Sensible way in which deep and honest looks at the audience. Giving back to the calls to that audience. Real emotion in his voice which is felt when we thank him that I heard, opening our hearts we tried in front of his music. Godliness with singing kneel. Nobility which they say goodbye, telling us that maybe we'll see, but we want to have life-lighted by good fortune to be surrounded by friends, family. And if it will not be given so lucky, we find peace and reconciliation in solitude. Humility sits with his hand over his heart and soul leaving the scene full of gratitude ...
