Hallelujah

This the ear candy that has been playing in my head since Friday night.  I’ve been a fan of Leonard Cohen since a college boyfriend introduced me to him over a decade ago.  He is a poet; both his songwriting and chords resonate in me in a unique way.

He performed in Detroit last year, and I wish I could have seen him live.  But, for all my respect for him, I prefer Jeff Buckley’s cover of “Hallelujah” to Cohen’s.  Rufus Wainwright’s is excellent as well.  Buckley’s version is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it.

Love is not a victory march.  It’s a cold and it’s a broken “hallelujah”.  ~Leonard Cohen
