Subject: RE: Help: 'Hallelujah' (Song on 'Scrubs' TV show)
I was watching my tape of the season finale episode of The West Wing, and I realize why Cohen's "Hallelujah" resonated with me so much when I heard it used on "Scrubs." Not only have I heard Leonard Cohen himself do it, but it was used to very powerful effect at the conclusion of this West Wing episode, too. I'm not sure whose recording it was (not Cohen's), but it was very haunting and moving.

What a powerful song!
