Anonny Mouse Origin: Hallelujah: Cohen? Buckley? (10) RE: Lyr Add: Hallelujah - Cohen/Buckley versions 20 Jun 06

Try Rufus Wainwright's version of this, which is on the Soundtrack of "Shrek" but done by somebody else for the movie. Rufus and Jeff Buckly were friends. Jeff, sadly, basically killed himself. Sad.

Actually, for any of you who haven't been "turned on" to Rufus, search him out, download MP3's whatever. He is a VERY talented man with a family of musicians behind him (Louden Wainwright/Martha McGarrigal). Two songs that absolutely Blow ME AWAY: "Beautiful Child" (about 9/11) and "I Don't Know What It Is."

Rufus really cared for Buckly, and was grief stricken over his death. Meanwhile, Rufus has been carving little-by-little a niche in music/recordings. Maybe a bit "unknown." I have seen him twice live and in concert--once from a front-row view. He is killer. Plays piano and a couple of Martin/Gibson big ol' gits. Check him out, is the best advice I can give.
