H-Burns and Pomme perform Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” — Pas De Merde

This is one of my favorite songs of all time done afresh by a duo I have never heard of but who I will follow from now on.

This is a hauntingly beautiful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s rather dark song “Suzanne”. I came across this just now and knew I had to share this. This is the first time I have ever heard of Pomme or H-Burns but I will now start following them.

I first heard Leonard Cohen when I was a sophomore at Eastern Kentucky University in 1977. My roommate at the time was a Leonard Cohen fan and introduced to him and his album The Best of Leonard Cohen. I had the lyrics to several of those songs memorized before long. I never became a Cohen groupie or followed his music, but throughout my life, when I heard one of his songs, my ears would pick up and I would drift through time to the much happier days of 1977 and envisioning the poignant world in Leonard Cohen’s music.

I hope you enjoy this…
