Pajammy Jam of the Day | Leonard Cohen - Famous Blue Raincoat

Yup, I'm taking it WAY back to 1971, Leonard Cohen style. Like you could have stopped me.

This song has always frightened the hell out of me with its unforgiving sense of what is real. It's such a sobering tale of all the shit that can go wrong in your life. Well, to me it is, anyway.

Yet, I love it SO much. Does that mean I'm a little off? Probably. And I couldn't be happier.

I'm haunted when Cohen sings, "Yes, and thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes/ I thought it was there for good/ So I never tried..."

  1. One of my favorite LC songs. Jennifer Warnes does a great version as well.
