These guys were a big part of the Soundtrack of my life in the late 80's.
A Canadian "New Wave" band that I still enjoy listening to today.
I love the nostalgia in the Videos, the cars, the clothes, the commentary regarding who we were....and all the cigarette smoking!! :cool2::cool2::cool2:

Feels so alive! Growing older can have a good connotation when surrounded by a familly of true friends!!!

A new Leonard Cohen song (posthumous as far as I know, and wow what beautiful lyrics) - from the man with the golden voice:
"I was always working steady
But I never called it art I got my shit together
Meeting Christ and reading Marx
It failed my little fire
But it’s bright the dying spark
Go tell the young messiah
What happens to the heart

There’s a mist of summer kisses
Where I tried to double-park
The rivalry was vicious
The women were in charge
It was nothing, it was business
But it left an ugly mark

I’ve come here to revisit
What happens to the heart

I was selling holy trinkets
I was dressing kind of sharp
Had a pussy in the kitchen
And a panther in the yard

In the prison of the gifted
I was friendly with the guards
So I never had to witness
What happens to the heart

I should have seen it coming
After all I knew the chart
Just to look at her was trouble
It was trouble from the start
Sure we played a stunning couple
But I never liked the part

It ain't pretty, it ain't subtle
What happens to the heart
Now the angel’s got a fiddle
The devil’s got a harp
Every soul is like a minnow
Every mind is like a shark
I’ve broken every window
But the house, the house is dark
I care but very little

What happens to the heart
Then I studied with this beggar
He was filthy, he was scarred
By the claws of many women
He had failed to disregard No fable here no lesson No singing meadowlark Just a filthy beggar guessing What happens to the heart I was always working steady But I never called it art It was just some old convention Like the horse before the cart I had no trouble betting On the flood, against the ark You see, I knew about the ending What happens to the heart I was handy with a rifle My father’s .303 I fought for something final Not the right to disagree "

Yanni - Standing in Motion (Remastered) (Last one post since I am going a bit over the top with Yanni today. But his team's music I have always loved a lot, and there are many more beautiful tracks on YouTube as well. Cheers)

I typically listen to classical, blues, jazz, and rock music. However, I stumbled upon an independent artist recently and I am really impressed with the quality of her music. The compositions are excellent. She utilises a lot of literary devices within her lyrics as well (metaphor, double entandre, etc cetera).
