Leonard Cohen : More Best Of 1997

Leonard Norman Cohen, (born 21 September 1934) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet and novelist. Cohen published his first book of poetry in Montreal in 1956 and his first novel in 1963. His work often explores religion, isolation, sexuality and interpersonal relationships

He is extremely well regarded by critics for his literary accomplishments,
for the richness of his lyrics, and for producing an output of work of high artistic quality over a five-decade career.

Over 2,000 renditions of Cohen's songs have been recorded.

Lou Reed described Cohen as belonging to the "highest and most influential echelon of songwriters.

From May 2008 to December 2010 Leonard Cohen was on the major comeback world tour, the biggest in his musical career, giving 246 shows in Europe, Australia, Canada, Israel and United States.

A latecomer to recording at 34 , Leonard Cohen could have been the object of an undergra
duettet's infatuation : A wrinkled , wordy and worldly wise father figure with a dirty min d , the Serge Gainsbourg of the English - speaking world .

Cohen's own lugubrious performances of songs discussing loneliness , love and hate , deleivered with minimal accompaniment , lasted him well through a series of albums in to the mid - 1970's .

When Punk arrived he was dismissed ( What a Shame !!!) , as a borindg old fart , but a tribute album released in 1991 found Nick Cave , The Pixies and R.E.M all lining up to pay their respects .

The band :" Sisters Of Mercy " took their name of a song by Leonard Cohen .

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded

Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over

Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor,

the rich get rich
That's how it goes

Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied

Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby

Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful

Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never

Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming

Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through

From the bloody cross on top of Calvary

To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows
