music – interpretations and cover versions – Hallelujah!


There are hundreds and hundreds of versions of “Hallelujah!” out there, some better, many worse. Even Leonhard Cohen, who wrote the original version, covered himself.

 

 

There’s no discussion that this is a wonderful song and either you perform it in the unpretentious ways of Leonhard Cohen or you need to be a terrific singer.

 

Annie Lennox even moved her translator to tears, when she performed this song while being in the studios of a French radio station.

 

 

Annie Lennox again, this time it looks as if this was taken from tarata

 

 

one of the best versions is – undeniably – by k.d. lang

I did not realize there were THAT many versions of this song. I am currently listening to several...interesting.

I actually like Leonard Cohen's version best from the ones you chose. So much better than the version with the choir lol.

P.S. Have you heard Brandi Carlile's version? I think you'd like it.
