I'm Your Man is the eighth studio album by Leonard Cohen, released in 1988. The album marked Cohen's further move to a more modern sound, with many songs having a synth-oriented production. I'm Your Man was recorded in Los Angeles and Montreal and employed four producers: Roscoe Beck, Jean-Michel Reusser, Michel Robidoux, and Cohen himself.
Lyrics: If you want a boxer I will step into the ring for you And if you want a doctor I'll examine every inch of you If you want a driver, climb inside Or if you want to take me for a ride You know you can I'm your man" (C) 2014. Sony Music Entertainment. I'm Your Man. Исполнитель.
I’m Your Man reinvented Leonard Cohen at age 53. It is the most fun you can have while being told that life is a terrible joke. Leonard Cohen appeared on seven of his album covers before 1988, always looking cooler and wiser than his listeners: he was the saturnine poet, the seductive man of the world. On the cover of I’m Your Man he looks better than ever, with his sunglasses and impeccable pinstripe suit-except that he’s eating a banana, the slapstick fruit. James Dean would not have looked cool eating a banana. Gandhi would not have looked wise. Cohen’s publicist Sharon Weisz snapped the picture at the video shoot for Jennifer Warnes’ version of First We Take Manhattan and thought nothing of it, but Cohen thought.
Genre: Singer-Songwriter. Leonard Cohen's advance in the 80's continues with a synth-oriented album, alignid with the latest, technological prescripts, but his voice not only remains the highlight of the album but it's more assuring than ever, Yes, you're our man. 1. 10mo. 73. A decent album from one of the most enigmatic artists of all time, this album has a very varied sound that still has an apparent 80s vibe. This is likely not Cohen's best album, but is a good introductory to his massive discography.
In fact, the album has the distinct honor of having two of its song titles pinched for LC tribute albums, once in 1991 for the Atlantic Records-released I’m Your Fan and then again in 1995 for the A&M issued Tower of Song: The Songs of Leonard Cohen. Such accolades and interpretations are a testament to the importance of I’m Your Man in the context of the Leonard Cohen canon
A stunningly sophisticated leap into modern musical textures, I'm Your Man re-establishes Leonard Cohen's mastery. Against a backdrop of keyboards and propulsive rhythms, Cohen surveys the global landscape with a precise, unflinching eye: the opening "First We Take Manhattan" is an ominous fantasy of commercial success bundled in crypto-fascist imagery, while the remarkable "Everybody Knows" is a cynical catalog of the land mines littering the surface of love in the age of AIDS.
Singles released from the album include the title track, "That Does It" and "This Small Divide", all of which charted on the Billboard country charts in 1997. In addition, the song "Can't Help Calling Your Name" was later recorded on Sellers' 1999 album A Matter of Time, from which it was released as a single. Hole in My Heart" was previously recorded by former NRBQ member Al Anderson on his 1996 album Pay Before You Pump.
I'm the Man is Joe Jackson's second album, released in October 1979. Taken from the album, "It's Different for Girls", was his biggest UK chart single, peaking at number five in the UK Singles Chart. I'm the Man was re-released in 2001 with one bonus track, a live version of "Come On". "Come On" was originally released as the b-side to Jackson's single "I'm the Man", also issued in October 1979.
