CONTEST – Leonard Cohen / Old Ideas

Photo By Frank YangFrank YangJust so as we’re clear, I don’t imagine that in the realm of Leonard Cohen giveaways, I’ll ever be able to top the one I held in February 2009 wherein I got to send a few people to the Hamilton date of his comeback tour. That said, having a copy of the master’s new album Old Ideas to give away on CD isn’t shabby at all, either.

It comes courtesy of With A Bullet and if you’d like a shot at having it for your own, leave a comment below with a bit of Cohen-inspired poetry; a simple stanza or haiku is more than sufficient. Make sure to include your email address for contacting – it will be hidden from prying eyes and spambots – and have that in before midnight, February 2. And contest open to residents of Canada only.

There’s an interview with Cohen about the 2009 tour, “Hallelujah” and the new record at Rolling Stone, wherein he reveals that there will indeed be a tour for this new record.

    The senseless fun, gone now for long,
    The smile just does not fit.
    You live a lie, and then it’s on –
    You’re now a TV freak.
    And summoned now to feel
    Like handled rotten meat,
    You live your life as if it’s real
    A Thousand kisses deep.

    It’s four in the morning, the end of december
    I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
    If I won this contest, that sure would be better

    There once was a man from Montreal
    Who sang beautiful poems – gave it his all
    An accountant stole his money,
    A situation not funny,
    But a new album puts him back on the ball!
