An extraordinarily poetic singer, Cohen is one of the things I have entirely inherited from my father’s music taste.

Simon and Garfunkel
If rum were a voice, it would be Conte. Lawyer turned songwriter, a treasure on the current Italian musical scene, this man manages to make songs about women calling their lovers monkeys and flatulence in the dark absolute masterpieces.
