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.
