One by one the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few

And those who dance begin to dance
And those who weep begin
Welcome, welcome, cries a voice
Let all my guests come in

From "The Guests"
by Leonard Cohen


Welcome to The Leonard Cohen Files - a tribute to the music and poetry of the Canadian singer-songwriter-poet-novelist Leonard Cohen.

This website was launched in September 1995. The site is hosted by Jarkko Arjatsalo in Finland. The webmaster appreciates the continuous help and support provided by Leonard Cohen and his management

Our Leonard Cohen Forum at www.leonardcohenforum.com is the meeting point for our members and all other Leonard Cohen fans. So far, there are more than 300,000 messages posted by over 27n,000 members. Thanks to the very effective worldwide network, The Forum is often the first to announce the news related to Leonard!

Click on the links on this front page to go to various sections of The Files, or use the Next and Previous buttons at the bottom of every page to navigate through the pages (more than 1000 so far). The Index page is here.
