Last week, as the death of Leonard Cohen was announced, we put up a pony to spend at any of the many Golden Discs nationwide, including Dundrum Town Centre (above) which opened last week (their biggest shop yet at 10,000 sq. ft).
In return, we asked YOU to nominate your favourite Leonard Cohen song.
You answered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
Liam Deliverance earns the voucher with this heartfelt dedication.
On this sad day would you ever just play Leonard Cohen’s “Nevermind” because he lived his life, he lived it as he wanted to live it, not as the world tried to dictate how he should live it. If you want to feel sorry for somebody, feel it for yourself, you are still here, you still face the challenge of preventing the world from changing you into opinionless robot. Mr Cohen is gone now, he survived that challenge, he wears the hat and now he wears the smile.
In other highlights:
Gorugeen: “On this sad day would you ever just play Leonard Cohen’s Tower of Song please. It reminds me of doing night feeds. My babies all calmed down just nicely when i put this song on. So long Leonard. I will surely miss you.
Nessy: “On this sad day would you ever just play Leonard Cohen’s Anthem because “the dove is never free” but today, Leonard Cohen is. “Don’t dwell on what has passed away ….”
Verbatim: ‘On this sad day would you ever just play Leonard Cohen’s Closing Time because it reminds me of all that I’ve left behind and we all have a closing time.”
Kearnivale: “On this sad day would you ever just play Leonard Cohen’s I’m Your Man, because his label told him they weren’t sure if he was any good, and he came back with this stunner.”
Turgenev: “On this sad day would you ever just play the documentary Leonard and Marianne, about the years on Hydra and the goodness he left ‘for the sake of an education in the world’.”
Thank you all.

You may have seen the video of born-deaf Joanna Milne (top) hearing for the first time.

“Joanne asked her friend Tremayne Crossley to make a music playlist for her to experience music for the first time we put it into the Spotify machine (has everything except Radiohead’s Jigsaw Falling Into Place)…”
They’re calling it deaf jam.
