Because Popular Problems and You Want It Darker were released after Leonard Cohen’s last tour, he never performed those songs (except Born in Chains) live. I’ve been thinking about which of the tracks on those albums I would have most anticipated hearing Leonard sing onstage.
OK, I can’t think of any songs from the Popular Problems and You Want It Darker albums that I wouldn’t want to hear in concert, but some – such as Almost Like The Blues – are especially appealing, at least in my imagination.
