‘Almost Like the Blues’

The WordPress Daily Prompt for August 23 asks, “What’s the first line of the last song you listened to (on the radio, on your music player, or anywhere else)? Use it as the first sentence of your post.”

I saw some people starving
There was murder, there was rape
Their villages were burning
They were trying to escape
I couldn’t meet their glances
I was staring at my shoes
It was acid, it was tragic
It was almost like the blues

“Almost Like the Blues” is the first song Leonard Cohen has put out in advance of the release on September 23 of his 13th studio album Popular Problems. Cohen will turn 80 on September 21. No tour has been announced.

Have an enjoyable weekend, friends.
