If it be your will

20 Jun

In W, of all places, I heard of this singer: Antony and the Johnsons. The photo shown in W and the opening line of the article had me curious instantly. Yeah for YouTube and the interwebs, I was able to find and listen to his music on the spot. (I’m hooked!) Now, while I don’t know the exquisite details of Antony’s biology or chromosonal make-up, my guess is Antony is a hermaphrodite. Talk about taking the gift of life and making it an exquisite prayer of gratitude and development! What an interesting and beautiful voice.

Sing, Antony, sing! Here’s Antony and the Johnsons singing, “If it be your will.”

And Leonard Cohen, singing his version.

    If you haven’t seen the doc on Cohen, “I’m Your Man,” it’s well worth a look. Seeing Antony do this song in that movie was a completely moving experience, and I loved the rest of the movie too.

    Je croyais que l’on était sur un blog d&Ãopuo;humour.J&rsqus;esqr¨re que Martin Vidberg va virer les sentencieux et garder les marrants. Sinon les blogueurs vont commencer à ressembler aux costume-cravates que l’on voit sur le premier dessin.« Cher Maître, quel est l’ordre du jour aujourd’hui, Schopenhauer ou Zarathoustra ? » « Non, c’est la crise grecque ». « Tant pis, je range mon encyclopédie et je sors ma calculette ».
