Poets And Songwriters
If there are some songwriters that deserve to be called poets too, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen are certainly among them. Actually Cohen began to write poems even before he started singing. His immortal classic Suzanne was recorded in'67, but I guess this beautiful clip was shooted in the '70's...or 80's maybe. Does anyone knows which is the language of the subtitles? I think it's a northern-european tounge, but i can't recognize it.
Nick Drake still stands as a romantic figure, admired and respected by younger indie-pop fans too. He used to spread his melancholy lyrics in a sweet and tender way, with the clear sound of his voice and his guitar-picking, and, in this case, a perfect string arrangement. This is a very poetic clip too, a mosaic of Nick's pictures and other beautiful black and white images that fit perfectly with the musical atmosphere.
To people wondering why there are no Bob Dylan's videos I say don't worry, we'll soon meet Mr. Zimmerman too.
