während Leonard Cohens Konzerten:
Die folgende Liste enthält sog. "Spoken Words" von Leonard Cohen, die er während seinen Konzerten einigen seiner Songs vorangestellt hat. Hier zunächst Spoken Words / Prologe während der 2008-2010er-Tournee:
"Thank you so much for having me... I was kind a nervous. Y'know, this is the flrst time I've done this in 14 years. I was 60 years old the last time I stood on a stage -just a kid with a crazy dream....'
"In that Interim period I took a lot of Prozac... Paxil, Desyrel, Ritalin, Adderall, Wellbutrin, Focalin... What did you guys take...? "
"I've also indulged myself in the various religions and philosophies. But cheerfulness kept breaking through..."
"I can say, without fear of contradiction, despite all the strategies, all the medications, all the pharmaceuticals that are available, 'There Ain't No Cure For Love...'"
"I was discussing my drinking problem with Sharon Robinson. She said, This is very serious -we better put it to music...'"
"This is a song I wrote at a time when I thought I ntight never be able to sing again. Quite worrying, especially when you could never sing in the first place..."
"Thank you for joining us at a place just the other side of intimacy. It's kind of you to come out on a school night. I apologise for putting some of you to such geographic and fmancial inconvenience. But I didn't establish the market..."
"I've found it, friends. I've found it tonight... I have finally unwound the religions and the philosophies to their very essence, to the very kernel of their meaning. Yes. I know what it's all about. And here it is : 'Doo-dum-dum-dum, Doo, dum, dum...'"
