A Glimpse of the Cosmos in Musical Heaven

It was last night I got to live my dream of seeing Leonard Cohen for the first time in my life. My heart raced when he took to the stage and a small tear trickled down my face as he began with Dance Me to the End of Love. It was at that moment I knew I had discovered musical heaven for one glorious night.

I have always been cynical of the rock shows were the girl is sobbing or  others are screaming into fits of hysteria as their favorite boy band takes the stage.

As Leonard Cohen was in the  middle of  singing Who by Fire something stirred within me a combination of happiness, excitement, and the realization that I was finally at a Leonard Cohen concert.

I felt it building! I tried to stop it! I placed my hand over my mouth and out came  a loud, horrible, uncontrollable sobbing!

My husband looked on in horror, the woman sitting next to me looked concerned, and the man in front of me turned to see what made that ungodly noise.

It was me!

I was horrified that I couldn’t control this wave of emotion that shook through my whole body. I was that sobbing woman!

Leonard Cohen has been with me through every heartache, bad day, and sings to me when I need that special push of inspiration. Something awoke within me that I was on the floor only thirty-four seats from the one mans voice that has been a constant in my life.

He has always had a way of stirring my soul and last night I was in the church of Leonard Cohen. It was beautiful, amazing, transcendent, and glorious!  It was the best night of my life as I was lifted to musical heaven and caught a glimpse of the cosmos.

Is there a musician or musical band that you have dreamed of seeing in your lifetime?

  1. I saw U2 a few years ago and that was amazing. It had always been a dream of mine. I can’t think of anyone specific I’d like to see… too many to choose from. I love music and it’s a big part of our lives.

  2. Bauhaus and Devo haven’t brought me to tears, but the emotion was palpable.

    What did bring on the waterworks was when my friends – after hearing I couldn’t attend an English Beat concert with them – somehow snagged a picture of Dave Wakling, on stage, holding a picture of me (!!!!)

  3. I’m really glad you got a chance to experience this. What a fantastic time. I hope you and yours have a lovely Thanksgiving. I’m a bit envious of all the turkey and the drinking but we don’t have that festival in the Uk. Boo Hoo. No wonder you lot kicked us out
