IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: LEONARD COHEN - SINGER/SONGWRITER/POET/NOVELIST

Canadian-born Leonard Cohen should be better known by Americans given his amazing 40+ year career. That may be because others have often gained more fame singing Cohen songs than Cohen himself. Judy Collins was one of the first when she had a hit in 1967 with Cohen's Suzanne. Joe Cocker had a hit in the 80s with First We Take Manhattan. More recently, young people around the world have been treated to new version's of Cohen's 1984 song Hallelujah. The song was sung by Rufus Wainwright on the soundtrack of the hit film Shrek and recently in the American Idol finals by Jason Castro.



Here's Jeff Buckley's well known version of Hallelujah:

    Leonard Cohen is self-effacing. His work is recognized and will long be so - he seems to consider himself simply the vessel. Hallelujah is well-known as one of his masterworks.

    I love the Tidings album version by Allison Crowe: http://www.allisoncrowe.com/AllisonCroweTidingsHallelujah.mp3

    And there's a video on YouTube:
