and his post got me to thinking about songs that others did better than the one who wrote them. Of course I googled some songs, listened to some others, and learned that two of my favorite songs in the world were written by Leonard Cohen. An old fart born about the time that my father was born. And a Canuck. But, damn, he can write music. Of course he wrote Hallelujah, I knew that. But he also wrote “Bird on a wire”–which was on my very first ever album, Joe Cocker, “zee maaadddogs, ze English men and Joe Cocker”. Gawd I loved that album.
