For four decades, Leonard Cohen has been one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time, a figure whose body of work achieves greater depths of mystery and meaning as time goes on. They say that watching Leonard Cohen performing is a unique experience that you shouldn’t miss if you consider yourself a music lover. Well, watching this video, from his performance in London in 2008, I can only agree with that.
The song “Everybody Knows” was released in February 1988 and was included in album “I’m your man”. It has been described by critics as a “bleak prophecy about the end of the world as we know it.” The lyrics include references to AIDS, social problems,and relationship issues.
One of the greatest remakes of this song is the one from Holly Figueroa O’ Reilly
