Hallelujah’s Best Version – no debate

Posted on: May 20, 2009

Hi All,

I was listening to this song last night and knew I just had to share it with you call today. There is no doubt in my mind that this is THE best version of Leonard Cohen’s masterpiece. It is vital that you listen to the WHOLE song from start to finish on this one. Jeff Buckley’s vocals in this are mind blowing. hallelujah

There are some interesting tidbits of trivia regarding Mr. Cohen’s song in this telegraph.co.uk article. One that I find interesting is that Leonard Cohen was said to have written a whopping 80 verses to this song originally. You can see and listen to Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah here.

Take a moment out of your day and check this tune out. It’s a Life of Tunes keeper an all time classic and the best version out there period. Sorry Devin!

Would normally agree with you 100% but I heard a pretty amazing version of it around the campfire last night…I’m just sayin’.

Well of course I meant the best except that one. I can’t wait to hear your recreation ASAP.

This song will make you smile if you’re up. If you’re down it’ll make you cry. Very emotional.

Sometimes the best die young…

Yeah that really sucks. It’s one of those hair on the back of the neck standing up tunes.

I think I’ll listen to it again right now. 🙂
