My favorite is Hallelujah: Cohen v. Buckley. I like Leonard's rendition better but Jeff's is more haunting and poignant given that he was dead by the time his was released.

You know, I've never heard either of those. But I do love k.d. lang's rendition of that song:




Never heard of Leonard Cohen? Gasp

He wrote the freakin' song. Facepalm

I am tempted to neg rep the fool for ignorance, but I can't argue that the dyke's rendition is astonishing.

I like them both, but I have to give the nod to 311 for having the more fun version.

I would agree that 311 was probably more enjoyable to listen to, but they were both really good. Maybe 311 could have taken a bit more ownership of their version of the song.

Now just hold on a second! Of course I've heard of Leonard Cohen, and I am well aware that he wrote this song. Note that the word "of" is conspicuously missing from my post. I didn't say I haven't heard of him -- just that I haven't heard him sing this song. You, sir, have misread my post.

And love is not a victory march.
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah.

The baffled King composing Hallelujah.





Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from Love
Is how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.
...

and from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.

Eagles. In addition to being the version that I'm simply more familiar with, it was just more upbeat than the Jackson Brown version.

So I have. Weeping
