The Other Blues Song – “Feels So Good, Baby, Not To Love You Like I Did”

The song described in the previous post, Leonard Cohen Premieres “The Other Blues Song” At October 29, 2009 Chicago Concert, is now available for the first time on video.

Lyrics

From LeonardCohenForum post by Misty Marie with an assist from Inne:

Feels so good baby not to love you like I did
Feels so good not to love you like I did
It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this prisoner live.
It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this prisoner live.

Feels so good baby just to wake up in the morning by myself
Cup of coffee in the kitchen – fire up a little danger to my health
It’s like the same old broken heart but it feels like it belongs to someone else.
It’s like the same old broken heart but it feels like it belongs to someone else.

Feels so good baby to see you smiling back at me
It’s so good baby not to be each others VIP
It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this man go free
It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this man go free

Feels so good not to love you like I did
Feels so good, I don’t know why but it just is
It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this prisoner live

It’s like they tore away my blindfold and they said we’re gonna let this prisoner live

The video – from  albertnoonan, of course – is even better than  my memory of it live last night.

    I certainly envy all of you that can go to a live concert, and thanks Albert for sharing it with ME! LOL

  3. Holy cow…Leonard Cohen, a new song, albertnoonan and Dr. HGuy…Chicago, I’m jealous. But I’ll always have the Palace in Waterbury and MSG. **Sigh**

  4. A while ago, techies predicted a concertgoer could soon leave a show and buy a recording of the concert he’d just attended. To my knowledge, it hasn’t happened yet. But the 2-day-old video I just watched online contained a song Cohen sang for the first time on stage. “That Other Blues Song” may not be the most poetic Cohen ditty, but it reinforced the feeling that I was witnessing history. Cohen wrapped up his audience with the feeling we were gathered together in someone’s livingroom for a peaceful respite from the harsh world that awaited when we left, after the last encore. Other than a few nearby concertgoers who had to be taught that audience members shouldn’t talk as if they were watching a movie that they could repeat ad infinitum, the concert was as sublime as the Webb sisters back-up duo, whose gymnastic ability Cohen often called “sublime.” Cohen and his lucky ticketholders have certainly been blessed.

  5. Amazing. It sounds like an outtake from “Blonde on Blonde” or maybe “Planet Waves;” this is meant to be very high praise. I know too many people who are there now, as opposed to having “been there,” and this will be solace for them all.

    Ah! Leonard knows!
    Thanks for the lyrics dude!

    XXOO

    @ E Ravelli: Indeed it is solace for me. Love swells and sucks, but the heart never gives up. I think Leonard Cohen captured that, and somehow takes the guilt (OY that dirty word) off like that blindfold.

    I just checked the schedule and they are touring in France in March! Ah what I would not give to be in the same concert hall just once. I hope he makes through the US again, that gives me another chance to scratch the bucks up to go! I am a latecomer, having discovered Cohen in ’04. One concert would not be too much to ask! :)

    Thanks Albert!

  8. Breakouts are always wonderful. Asheville was one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. It’s been a long time since I first heard Leonard in 1968 and some years are missing, there was no music. Good to be listening once again.
