Leonard Cohen – “Everybody Knows” – 2.14.12

Leonard Cohen
‘Everybody Knows”

“And everybody knows that the Plague is coming 
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast 
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman 
Are just a shining artifact of the past 
Everybody knows the scene is dead 
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed 
That will disclose 
What everybody knows”

If I were to make a movie, I would definitely follow every other one ever and put Leonard Cohen‘s “Everybody Knows” on the soundtrack. It would probably be the scene when I (the bad ass anti-hero) walks down the middle of a street as family’s run inside to hide, store owners close shop windows and everyone else cowers in fear right before I take down a gang of thugs with ease. Then I walk slowly into the sunset as the ladies swoon and my trusty dog runs up to my side.

…Anyway, I’ve become re-obsessed with “Everybody Knows” off of Cohen’s 1988 album I’m Your Man since I heard the Cults cover (I put it below) the other day. I also thought that “Everybody Knows” would be a perfect song for Valentines Day because it has such a positive message… Go to hell happy couples!

Give Leonard Cohen‘s new album Old Ideas a listen as well!
