Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah

Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah”

Despite the fact that I can NEVER spell this word correctly, and that everyone in the world has done a cover of it, Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is one of the best songs of the modern age.

That’s a large claim, but come on, it’s an amazing song, and I think Cohen’s original version is still definitive, apologies to the dozen or so covers of it on YouTube.

Whoa, John, we seem to have similar tastes in poetry and music. Ilove Cohen and this song is a particular favorite. Thanks!

I never post to people's blogs, but the last few days, you've inspired me. Thanks for that too!
