    If he had a signature song, maybe Dance Me to the End of Love is it, which may now be interpreted as Dance Me to the End of Life:

    R.I.P. His theme was the greatest part of the 2nd season of True Detective.

    He actually died on Monday Nov 7 and buried in Montreal on the afternoon of Nov 10 - the news was released after he was buried - well done to the family for keeping it quiet for three days:

    His signature song was definitely "Hallelujah", although he had many other songs better than that IMO. This loss is a tough one for me, behind Dylan he's my favorite songwriter, and always seemed like such a humble and gracious man. This world will miss him greatly, that's for sure.

    A great poet and song writer. His place in history is safe.
