Leonard Cohen 1934-2016

Leonard Cohen, a truly great poet and musician, passed away today at the age of 82. He wrote many, many great songs, and I've posted a few favorites below. If you're intrigued I'd encourage you to explore YouTube; there are so many Leonard Cohen gems. Cohen's most recent album, You Want It Darker, was released just three weeks ago. The song below, "It Seemed a Better Way," is from this album. Leonard Cohen will be missed.
