Leonard Cohen To Interviewer “Why don’t you just ask me what my favourite colour is? It’s yellow. Well, and blue.”

Thank goodness Leonard also liked blue; “Famous Yellow Raincoat” just doesn’t scan

Leonard Cohen’s comment was spoken to protest the interviewer focusing on issues (e.g., Zionism) that were “too complex, too serious to speak of over coffee.” From Love Me, Love My Gun Barrel by Graham Lock. New Musical Express: February 23, 1980.  Leonard also gave yellow as his favorite color in this 1988 video interview.
