  6. Definitely Graham... I enjoyed it so much...Cohen was singing again and again to his knees, and he bows to almost humiliating for the applause, and he was grateful for the gratitude that resonates in the cheers of his audience....

  9. Leonard is to pop, as is Glen Gould to classical music.

  10. “ I've heard "Hallelujah" by a number of artists and a few were quite good, but nothing compared to Leonard Cohen's rendition, he's still the greatest. ” .
