Best Leonard Cohen Songs

The Top TenXW


This is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It does things to my heart that I can't even describe. Leonard Cohen is a lyrical genius and one of my favorite artists ever. Simply and completely beautiful.

Some of the best lyrics ever written - Billyv

Sorry Buckley fans but Cohen really is the man

Jeff Buckley was better at singing it though - MASAI97

Something about this cold song really makes it special

So hard to choose- but Teachers, Who By Fire, Famous Blue Rain Coat and Wating for a mirical come close.
