Leonard Cohen dead at 82

Leonard Norman Cohen, CCGOQ (21 September 1934 – 7 November 2016[2]) was a Canadian singer, songwriter, poet and novelist. His work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships.[3] Cohen was inducted into both the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame as well as the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was a Companion of the Order of Canada, the nation’s highest civilian honour. In 2011, Cohen received one of the Prince of Asturias Awards for literature and the ninth Glenn Gould Prize.

    I do not think I ever heard of Leonard Cohen.  But I love the song he wrote of “Hallelujah.” 
The YouTube video of him doing it below is the first time I have seen it.  I do not like his version.

 

The version below by Gord Downie I like better.

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
