TBT: Leonard Cohen, "Bird on a Wire."

Leonard Cohen, the Bard of Montreal, turned 81 this week. He is a poet, songwriter, singer, and novelist (Beautiful Losers). I first knew of him from listening to Judy Collins sing his "Suzanne" on WBCN in Boston during my law school years. It almost made me want to be Canadian.

The clip above shows him doing one of his most popular songs, "Bird on a Wire," and a favorite of mine, live in concert in 1979.
