Last Thursday, the legendary Leonard Cohen performed in front of an American audience for the first time in 15 years at NYC's Beacon Theater. NPR has graciously posted a dozen of the songs on its All Songs Considered podcast (this link will fire up your iTunes, or you can settle on the streaming version).

Here's the shortened setlist:

"Dance Me to the End of Love"

"The Future"

"Chelsea Hotel"

"Tower of Song"

"Suzanne"

"The Partisan"

"Hallelujah"

"Recitation With N.L."

"Take This Waltz"

"So Long Marianne"

"First We Take Manhattan"

"Democracy"

At the ripe age of 74, there's a good chance that this will be the last tour to hit the US, so if you're a fan, plan on making a road trip this Spring.
