Goodbye, Gilmore Girls

Goodbye. One of my favorite gentlemen and one of my favorite songs.

“Boogie Street” is a song written by Leonard Cohen and published on his 2001 album “Ten New Songs”. The lyrics are real and so wonderful, and the song is beautifully put together in two voices.

When it came to the title, Leonard Cohen said: There is an actual Boogie Street in the world. It’s in Singapore. I don’t know if it’s still there. I was coming home from a tour of Australia many years ago and during the day Boogie Street is a scene of intense commercial activity. In fact, there’s a lot of little stalls where bootleg records are sold. […] There was that kind of bazaar feeling. And at night, it was a scene of intense and alarming sexual exchange. Prostitution, and . . . everything seemed to be available. I don’t even know if it was prostitution. It just seemed to be mutual availability. Boogie Street to me was that street of work and desire, the ordinary life and also the place we live in most of the time that is relieved by the embrace of your children, or the kiss of your beloved, or the peak experience in which you yourself are dissolved, and there is no one to experience it so you feel the refreshment when you come back from those moments.” [from Cohencentric.com]

I’ll just kindly ask you to play the song below.
