Top Leonard Cohen Songs
The best songs of Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen is a Canadian poet, songwriter and singer. Cohen, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is legendary throughout the world for writing and performing such classics and “Suzanne” and “Bird on a Wire”. Cohen’s songs have also been recorded by the likes of such diverse performers as Joe Cocker, REM, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Judy Collins, Bono, Bob Dylan, Elton John and Justin Timberlake.
Selecting a ‘best of list’ or the ‘top’ songs of an artist, especially if the artist has been honing his craft for half a century, is of course a very subjective assignment. Nonetheless, below is a summary of what I believe are the most powerful and beautiful examples of Cohen’s work. All of the videos have been linked from Youtube.
