On Saturday evening I performed a set of songs by Leonard Cohen at a venue called Cafe Improv, at the Princeton Arts Council. I know that several MoJers are interested in Cohen's music. Here is the link to a video of my performance of "Nancy," which I regard as one of Cohen's finest pieces of social criticism: http://rgeorge26.shutterfly.com/pictures/14. Although "Nancy" isn't one of them, many of Cohen's songs feature religious imagery, much of it Catholic. Even "Nancy" has some references to religion, or to its absence---"in the house of mystery, there was no one at all."
