Video: Leonard Cohen Asked & Answers “Why Was The King Baffled?” – Brooklyn Dec 20, 2012

Somehow it seems fitting that the question “Why was the king baffled?” from the lyrics of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”1 was asked of and answered by the song’s composer in Brooklyn as he was leaving the theater, having completed the final concert of the 2012 Tour.

  6. This is wonderful.
    A “Q&A” with Leonard Cohen is a rarity these days. :)
    Heck – there has just been a whole book written/published about Leonard’s masterpiece song – “Hallelujah.” And here we have a 42 second video – a terrific question from a little 4-year old girl – and a wonderful answer from the Master, himself.

    And one more thing – I think it’s time for Leonard Cohen’s magnificent “Hallelujah” to receive the Grammy Hall of Fame Award! :)
