Best Leonard Cohen Songs

The Top Ten

1 Suzanne

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

Brings sadness to the heart...😥

2 Famous Blue Raincoat

The best work of master song writer leonard cohen. It has a vague and yet complicated concept and you just can't stop listening to it!

This songs is incredible. For everybody it have many mean. There is a story in this song

The story behind this song is just moving

3 Bird on the Wire

This song plumbs the depths of the human emotion. Simply unparalleled.

An all-time classic song. Shockingly under-rated.

4 Hallelujah

Sorry Buckley fans but Cohen really is the man

Jeff Buckley was better at singing it though - MASAI97

My number one pick

Love it

5 Dance Me to the End of Love V 2 Comments
6 Anthem
7 First We Take Manhattan

Definitely my favorite Cohen song. The lyrics are a bit cryptic, but it takes you on a journey.

Should be in the top ten!

8 Everybody Knows

Dark, foreboding song that really should be Number 1!

9 The Stranger Song

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.

10 Who by Fire

The Contenders

11 So Long, Marianne
12 I'm Your Man
13 Diamonds in the Mine
14 The Future
15 Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye
16 Avalanche

Poetic masterpiece.
"You strike my side by accident
as you go down for your gold.
The cripple here that you clothe and feed
is neither starved nor cold;
he does not ask for your company,
not at the centre, the centre of the world."

17 You Want It Darker

Cohen just gets better with age

18 Ain't No Cure for Love
19 One of Us Cannot Be Wrong
