Leonard Cohen [1934-2016]

Artist: Leonard Cohen
LP: Songs of Love and Hate
Song: "Avalanche"
[ listen ]

It's been a sad, grueling week. First there was that election thing, where my country swerved so violently and suddenly to the right that I almost fell off. Next I find out Leonard Cohen is dead, and then I learn that my wonderful high school choir/jazz choir teacher, Roger Stansbury, has also passed away. And then Robert Vaughn, one of the Men From U.N.C.L.E., ups and follows the both of them out the stage door. Calgon, take me away!

We will miss you, Leonard.
