Who's version of Hallelujah is better.
No mentions of DeGraw please.
if anyone says anything other than Buckley, they're lying.
Cohen didn't realise it at the time, but he wrote if for Jeff.
and besides, wasn't the Buckley version inspired by/ripped off from the John Cale version?
Its turning into a royal rumble of people that have covered it!
this has been done to death already anyway.
maybe i should stop the whole debate idea, i mean it's not like anyone has replied to this thread...oh wait...
how do you know I'm not?
Buckley just isn't all that.
One of the finest performances of a piece of music committed to tape ever really.
but Buckley easily....
although NUFF RESPECT to cohen because the lyrics are good
all others fall short.
Seeing him perform it at Glastonbury this year was one of the greatest moments of my life
