He brought heartbreak, love, and redemption to life. His poetry burned bright against the music of his songs.

That was Leonard Cohen. And now he's gone.

The beloved Canadian poet, author, artist and musician died Thursday at age 82. But the music — his iconic music — transcends.

From the ubiquitous "Hallelujah" with its many covers by a multitude of adoring superstars to the tortured longing of "Suzanne" to the menacing "Everybody Knows," his artistry is woven into the fabric of Canadian culture and music history.

So a fitting way to pay tribute to the legend is by listening his songs. We've rounded up some of his finest in the list below.

We tip our hats and raise a glass to you, sir.
