Napustio nas je legendarni Leonard Cohen

Velikog se glazbenika prisjećamo s njegovim najljepšim stihovima
leonard cohen
2016. godina je odlučila igrati opako, počastivši nas još jednim danom zaogrnutim tužnim plaštem. Netom nakon što nam je u listopadu darovao svoj posljednji glazbeni album, napustio nas je veliki glazbenik, kantautor i pjesnik Leonard Cohen, zaduživši nas svojim bogatim stvaralaštvom do grla.

U 82. godini legendarni se kanadski umjetnik pozdravio sa svijetom, možda otišao u neki bolji, ostavivši nam kao utjehu svojih 14 studijskih albuma, uključujući i posljednji You Want It Darker te na desetke pjesama, često mračnih i dubokih kao bezdan. Kroz svoje je stvaralaštvo progovarao o ljubavi, religiji, politici i depresiji, istražujući mračne kutke života.

I premda smo ovu strašnu vijest mogli očekivati s obzirom na to da je se glazbenik već neko vrijeme borio s bolesti, teško je ne ostati duboko šokiran gubitkom jednog od najvećih vizionara i pjesnika glazbenog svijeta. Dan stoga obilježavamo malim djelićem bogatog opusa misli ovog Poete laureata pesimizma.


''Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.'' (Anthem)

''Like a baby, stillborn. Like a beast with his horn I have torn everyone who reached out for me. But I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong I will make it all up to thee.'' (Bird on the Wire)

''Dance me to the children who are asking to be born. Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn. Raise a tent of shelter now though every thread is torn. And dance me to the end of love.'' (Dance Me to the End of Love)

''And I'll dance with you in Vienna, I'll be wearing a river's disguise. The hyacinth wild on my shoulder my mouth on the dew of your thighs. And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moss. And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty, my cheap violin and my cross.'' 


''How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?'' (Beautiful Losers)

"I saw you this morning, you were moving so fast. Can't seem to loosen my grip on the past. And I miss you so much, there's no one in sight. And we're still making love in my secret life. I smile when I am angry, I cheat and I lie, I do what I have to do to get by, In my secret life.'' (In My Secret Life)

''You go your way. I'll go your way too.'' (Book of Longing)

''Reality is one of the possibilities I cannot afford to ignore.'' (Beautiful Losers)
