Tower of Song became my new anthem after I gave Leonard Cohen’s Live In London to Ms. Modigliani for her birthday. I find myself singing the lyric at the most inappropriate of times, but hey, it works for me!
My friends are gone and my hair is grey.
I ache in the places where I used to play.
And I’m crazy for love but I’m not coming on.
I’m just paying my rent every day in the tower of song.
Another song from the London Concert should be the national anthem. I can get choked up when I hear Democracy Is Coming to the USA.
I’m sentimental, if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can’t stand the scene.
The official music video is very good, too, but the embed is locked down.
Café Mouffe opens on Fridays. Please drop by for a listen and a chat. Sometimes the embedded videos don’t work here due to bandwidth constraints, but you’ll always find links to video sources in the notes. Try them. If you’re curious about the Mouffe, here’s the original idea behind it’s creation.
