An Independence Day Ballad from Leonard Cohen

194

The sonorous midnight-bass of Leonard Cohen’s iconic voice has deepened even more in his old age. The musician, singer, song-writer and folk icon may originally be from Canada, but he captures a complex patriotic sentiment that is distinctly American.

I love this song for its poetry. It addresses our country’s current climate, as we continue to figure out what it means to be American in a dynamic ever-changing world.
