"I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am." 💫 #TBT to this day in 1997, when Diana, Princess of Wales, passed away in a fatal car crash in a road tunnel in Paris. The mother of two sons, William and Harry, Diana was famous for her charity work and for her support of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. She was involved with dozens of charities such as the notable London's Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, as well as her extensive campaigning for HIV/AIDS awareness, and animal protection. Elton John's song, "Candle in the Wind 1997" was re-written and re-recorded version as a tribute to Princess Diana. According to the Guinness Book of Records, "Candle in the Wind 1997" is the second highest selling single of all time!

When their creative ambitions fail them, most get a “normal” job or return to school. But not the great bard Leonard Cohen, who began his career as a poet. Originally from Canada, Cohen studied poetry at McGill, eventually moving for a time to the remote Greek island of Hydra, where he wrote and published poetry reclusively. However, frustrated with the lack of financial stability of being a poet, Cohen emigrated to America in 1967 to join the ever-growing trend of poetic folk music singer–songwriters. This may seem odd now, but at the time, “artsy” folk singers were all the rage (Simon and Garfunkel were in peak popularity, and music managers had already begun forming commercial “folk supergroups” like Peter, Paul, & Mary). It’s no wonder that one of Cohen’s first hits, the stunning meditation “Suzanne,” originally saw publication as a poem a year prior to its recording. Cohen passed away late last year, but take a deep dive now to his brilliant, raw, canonically literary yet wildly inventive discography. Pictured is Hydra, Cohen’s poetic refuge. #IVYconnect #NewMusicFriday #FlashbackFriday
