Leonard Cohen- Ten New Songs 2001 Phil Ochs John Lennon and Yoko Ono

What a week with Snowthunder and Power outages intruding into everyday life. I frame the issue with two songs, Phil Ochs "Power and Glory", Leonard Cohen "The Land of Plenty" (May the light in the Land of Plenty shine on the truth someday). Paul Simon's "Questions for the Angels", Neil Young "Show Me" and Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". Pixar's Movie WALL-E is a light hearted story of total environmental destruction of the Earth which mankind abandons. From the soundtrack we hear Peter Gabriel's "Down to Earth" and Tom Petty's "All You Can Carry". John Lennon's last day was Dec 8 1980 when he recorded the lead guitar track for Yoko Ono's "Walking on Thin Ice" about the unpredictable nature of the future. We finish with Joni Mitchell's "If I had a Heart" and Leonard Cohen's final work "You Want it Darker".
