The only reason this theme is tough is because one must narrow it down to the good ones. There is no shortage of songs. And I have to eliminate the ones I might have already used in other themes, etc.
It's hard being me.
Leonard Cohen has a new album out. It seems critics are tripping over themselves to give a better review than the last.
I'm a fan of Cohen....his writing that is. Not so much this
Cohen has a tribute disk or two dedicated to his music, but do I really want to hear Billy Joel, Elton John or Don Henley sing his songs? The question is not rhetorical. The answer is a resounding "no".
While I've written about Jennifer Warnes' 1987 disk, Famous Blue Raincoat, or unofficially called "Jenny Sings Lenny", it really is one of the great disks out there. Not just of Cohen music, but in general.
I get that you only know Warnes from her songs from the movies Dirty Dancing or Officer & a Gentleman or perhaps her one true hit, "Right Time of the Night". Until Famous Blue Raincoat, that's all I knew too.
Only 9 songs in the bunch, but she chose wisely.
So I chose her title track. I hope you like it.
