Leonard Cohen + Swedish TV = Fun
Today, Cohencentric offers two confection from Swedish TV. These videos feature Leonard Cohen, aided and abetted – as well as fondled – by Perla Batalla and Julie Christensen, performing “I’m Your Man” and “Tower Of Song” on the June 29/30,1988 edition of Jacob’s Backstage (Med Noje Pa Dalaro) Stockholm, Sweden. Both videos are set, for reasons never made apparent, against the backdrop of a pleasant lake, replete with pleasure boats and swimmers.
I’m Your Man
While the obligatory flirtatious adoration by Cohen’s back-up singers associated with the salaciously provocative “I’m Your Man” is the primary stage business going on in this video, at least two other small gems adorn this production.
