Artist: Leonard Cohen
Album: Songs of Leonard Cohen
Suzanne's the song I crave on lonely, cold nights when the romantic in me craves for something less substantial than chocolate for the poetic soul.
Leonard Cohen has the most heartwarming voice, an acquired taste, deep and manly as he sails through his tune, accompanied by flecks of guitars and vocals, accentuating and balancing his depth and richness. Slow, his music slides through your spirit, leaving a certain feeling behind, beautiful and wholesome. Sparks fly through nerves as he ends his lines, words do this song little justice.
"You can spend the night beside her, and you know that she's half crazy, but that's why you want to be there."
Lyrics are Cohen's forte', plain gorgeous poetry about a woman, many would sell their soul to the Devil to be portrayed in such manner. Desire flickers between the lines, about Suzanne, the woman who touches his perfect body with her perfect mind. Settings described with such vividness, the song's surely to transport one to another world altogether, eyelids feeling as if opposite ends of the magnets are stuck on respective lashes... wanting to just close one's eyes and indulge.
