I told you when I came I was a stranger Leonard Cohen : My Poverty Revealed

Welcome to the only fanlisting listed at TheFanlistings.Org for the ethereal, darkly intense and raw music and art of Leonard Cohen. Here is a musician whose naked melody and poetic structures write their own midnight tale brimming with a daunting truth and clarity; here is a musician who is not afraid to rip out bare truths about sexual relationships and conflicts, and the evasive reality of our human isolation into velveted words.

What is a "fanlisting"? Well, it is simply a site that aims to unite fans from all across the world of a particular subject, by creating an online "list" of "fans" for that subject. This is according to the idea found at the original fanlisting headquarters, TheFanlistings.Org.

Why did I build this fanlisting for Leonard Cohen? I find that Cohen’s music is like a corkscrew to the heart: he has this darkly intense talent to scrawl out the words of a broken meshed soul, and sing them into desperate clarity. His songs linger on A minors and gentle F majors; his guitar fingerpicking resists the familiar speed of a singer-songwriter, instead creating a unique melody in his cinematic world of heartbreak, sexual conflict, damaged relationships, and reality. His music has accompanied some serious times in my life, where I have questioned my own morality and fate, and so Cohen is something I cannot imagine my musical catalogue and life without, but equally cannot bear to listen to during my darkest, most revealing, and denying times.

So that’s my story! But if you are also a fan of Leonard Cohen, then the "fanlisting" concept is that you can join his fanlisting (this website is a voluntary fan effort), and become part of a growing, worldwide list of his fans. You can navigate around this website using the image links found on the main image above, and also refer to the site map if you’re confused about how to navigate around this website.
