You Want It Darker - Leonard Cohen

from the album You Want It Darker (2016)

Leonard Cohen died today.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the song "If I Didn't Have Your Love."  I thought that it was altogether fitting to choses a love song from the final album of such a master songwriter.

I was urged by readers of this blog to also write about the album's title track, "You Want It Darker."  I agree with them that it is an incredible song, but I held back.  Not certain why.

Well, tonight I find myself listening to this song - over and over - wondering if he know of his impending death when crafting the lyrics and music.  Maybe...

Take a listen to a master songwriter at the end of his days.

God bless Leonard Cohen.
