Leonard Cohen died 

  Leonard Cohen died today. This is one of my favourite songs.  Inspiring 

 لئونارد کهن امروز در گذشت.   یکی از اهنگهای زیبایش تقدیم به شما عزیزان . لئونارد کهن در توضیح این اهنگ میگوید  او برای این اهنگ از خواندن در مورد کشتار مردم در کمپ نازیها الهام گرفته. در جایی که در حین اینکه  کوره های ادم سوزی در حال کار کردن بود  و انسانها را میکشتند ،تعدادی از این اسیران هنوز     در آن شرایط وحشتناک که همبندیهایشان را برای کشتن میبردند هنوز با ادوات موسیقی شکسته شان اهنگ کلاسیک میزدند. ”
و برای اینست که من این اهنگ رو دوست دارم حتی در وحشتناکترین شرایط عشق به زندگی و موسیقی وجود دارد و این شگفت انگیزی انسان را نشان میدهد.

Cohen said in writing this song he was inspired by what happened in Nazi  concentration camps. He said:
” That came from just hearing or reading or knowing that in the death camps, beside the crematoria, in certain of the death camps, a string quartet was pressed into performance while this horror was going on, those were the people whose fate was this horror also. And they would be playing classical music while their fellow prisoners were being killed and burnt.”
And this to me is an inspiration to love life and music even in the most horrendous situation.  Yes that why is my favourite. ..
