A little tribute to the great Leonard Cohen. Another 40 years and I'll have have that voice and half that mind. Until then I will write and sing a parody song for a podcast. A parody of "The Future"

Give him scotch and xanax pills
Michael on the Green Egg Grill
Or an easy chicken dish
From Blue Apron
Give him parking right up close
Mazza Gallerie handicap row
No West End flicks from Anne,
That’s an order
Don’t park that Volvo on his street
And Deliver his paper, toot sweet
Cause he wakes up with the
Raccoons and the opossums
Give em a podcast and SeatGeek read
Cause times running out on the TV screen
I’ve seen the future Tony,
It’s Pablo Torre…

I love this! It's a shame that all the jingles have to be shorter these days, or you could have done the line about "the Blizzard that was forecast by Kip Sheeman, and it's covered up the 2-0-0-1-5". Maybe for JingleFest in 3D.
