Most of us are familiar with Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Bon Jovi even has a version.
He has some new stuff out. Here Seth Rogovoy asks if this is not Cohen’s most Jewish song yet: You Want if Darker.
The lyrics talk about crucifixion and healing the lame. But the Messiah has not come for Cohen. Love has not come. There is a post-Holocaust sense of struggle for faith.
Anyway, I think it is great, thought-provoking music.
