I've been feeling a bit down recently, what with the world going into a Depression, my inability to find a job and my sleep pattern being obliterated by my 4 week old son.

And yes, I know I should be happy with him, and I am, its just that the 'big picture' sucks.

Once Wifey and Son were asleep this evening I decided to listen to some of my favorite music and just chill. I found one of my favorite songs on the Tube o' You and listened, then found a few more versions in the 'Related Views' section and thought I'd share them with you.

The version loved by musicians the world over:

Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

The song's latest popular reincarnation, as used in the film 'Shrek':

"Hallelujah" by Rufus Wainwright (Central Park)

Bob Dylan's version:

Bob Dylan - Hallelujah

And the original:

Leonard Cohen Hallelujah Live

A very nice Norwegian version, in English - Espen Lind (on guitar), Askil Holm, Alejandro Fuentes, Kurt Nilsen

Hallelujah Best version!

Well, I feel better now, do you? No? Just be happy I left the Il Divo version out!!

  1. Hmmm. Yes, very odd that both of us found the same tune to blog about at near the same time. Odd and ironic.

    But it is a very good tune, and I'm pleased you located a Dylan version which I hadn't.
