My great friend and mentor Doc Searls posted a poignant eulogy to Leonard Cohen.

I had no idea he felt the same way I do about his music.

Through the soundtrack of my life, nobody else taught more about how to be a man, a lover, and a human being with one foot in the temporary world and the other in eternity.

I’ve listened over and over to all of his albums. I especially like “The Future” and “Ten New Songs.” His new album—“Songs from a Room” is also fabulous.

His music played a huge role in getting me through many a tough time, A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run,
the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it’s done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it’s real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.
