RIP Leonard Cohen

It took me until after college to click into him. I heard "So long Marianne" over and over in the Coffee Connection I worked in before it became a Starbucks and right after I broke up with a girl of the same name. Thankfully, I also heard "Tower of Song," "Hallelujah " and so many others via that shop and my roommate's albums. Wonderful work. Stays with me today.

I'd like to think that this is the song he heard before he died. It's better than "Everybody Knows" or "Waiting for the Miracle to Come."
