Looking For The Best Song Referencing Leonard Cohen is a Cohencentric series featuring a few of the many tunes alluding to Leonard Cohen. Today’s offering is No Remedy For Love By Liona Boyd
The song No Remedy For Love is dedicated to Leonard Cohen. That’s Thoreau — I saw the quote at the Church of the Redeemer. ‘There is no remedy for love, but to love more.’ I liked that. The song turned out a bit cynical, but that’s not my stance on love. I’m still optimistic. I’d love a soul mate. I’ll find love somehow.
Excerpted from Liona Boyd’s new outlook on life by Liz Braun (Toronto Sun: October 21, 2017).
Serendipitously, I had noted the same parallel declarations a few months ago; see Leonard Cohen & Henry David Thoreau On An Antidote For Love
The entire album is available on Spotify. The song, No Remedy For Love, is the fourth track.
