Canadian artist Leonard Cohen is about to have a chart topper in Britain with a song he first released in 1984.
Hallelujah is set to make music history with three places on the U.K. singles charts, including No. 1 and No. 2.
The top two versions are from folks I never heard, one of them being Jeff Buckley, who I just read died in the 90s. His version IS nice. Here are a couple places you can listen to it:
– MP3 of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah
– (no video)
The 3rd version making the charts in Britain is the original from Cohen, found at MOKB Covers Project : Hallelujah Repost, along with dozens of other versions, including those by Bob Dylan, K.D. Lang, John Cale.
As Steel White Table has previously reported, it IS the Best Song Ever Written by a Canadian.
