The Lord of Song

I just bought tickets to see Leonard Cohen and I couldn't be more excited. They're nosebleed seats because the good ones are crazy expensive but that's okay, I'll be happy just to be in the building. How often in your life are you in the presence of such greatness?

Back in May 2006 we went to the Leonard Cohen tribute at the Indigo on Bloor. He joined Ron Sexsmith and The Barenaked Ladies in singing So Long Marianne (which, as you know, is such a beautiful song that it makes your eyes ache) and when he shouted out my favourite lines I swear it seemed that the entire audience was holding their collective breath in awe. As one YouTube commenter put it, “You can't buy this moment in time.”
