If anyone ever said that were feeling a bit down the standard response used to be "oh shit he's going to get the Leonard Cohen LPs out".

I think I'll dust off 'Songs from A Room'.
Another good 'saying' comes from the Thick Of It when Malcolm Tucker says:

"I've got a to do list as long as a Leonard Cohen song!"

There's an old documentary from '88 on iPlayer right now if anyone's interested. Loads of live footage and interviews with the man himself.

My personal favourite 'The Partisan'. RIP

I've really come to appreciate his work and "enjoy" listening to him now.

I just wish he didn't have to pass for me to discover him.

Especially enjoying his live recordings, which is unusual for me, as normally I don't like live stuff. Maybe it's because he is new to me, so I do not have the non-live recordings to compare to in my head.

Funny you said this, the next song up on Pandora was "The Future" from Live in London, and heavily features some young ladies singing.... I guess it was them!

Yes I expect so. They do a solo too - If It Be Your Will. It was stupendous on the two occasions I saw them.
You are right about the live albums - I particularly like So Long Marianne on the Field Commander Cohen album. The sax coming in half way through is the musical equivalent of the Kevin Philips penalty against Watford.One of the best moments in the history of recorded music.....

If you want a female variation on the Leonard Cohen theme try "Everybody Knows" by Sharon Robinson.Great late night music and not that depressing.

His last album is great. It certainly is darker, even by his standards.
