Your Daily Leonard

As I've been chronicling, I am continuing to read the fine new Leonard Cohen bio and have finally reached just past the halfway point.  He's survived his encounter with gun-toting Phil Spector, taken some time off, busted up with the mother of his two kids, and returned with a fine late-1970s that included two of his greatest songs: "Hallelujah" and "If It Be Your Will."  Surprise: It was dropped by his record company and not even released at the time in the USA!

Figuring you've heard enough of "Hallelujah" for awhile (or for a lifetime), here is one of my favorite gems from that lp, which Leonard wrote about his wife, who now had a boyfriend.  And below that, one of the greatest hymns--and please forhumanity--ever written, "If It Be Your Will."
