I thought I'd make an entry about a great great musician/singer/artist, from a great anglo and Jewish (now Buddhist, but still Jewish) Quebecker from Montréal: Leonard Cohen. I discovered him circa 1992, when The Future was released. I was blown away. I guess his coarse voice and pessimistic (and prophetic, I might add) lyrics just appealed to the teenager I was, but I still love it so much. So here it is, The Future, by Leonard Cohen, via youtube, I couldn't find the original video and this montage is unforgiveably cheesy, but you just need the music, the lyrics and the voice. Pure modern, and terribly contemporary, poetry.
