A few weeks ago, we got a request to do a cover of “Hallelujah”, by Leonard Cohen -Yes, we’ll give you a shout out, Gayve! I could not have been more thrilled, as I am a huge fan of the rendition performed by Jeff Buckley, who incidentally is one of my favorite performers of all time. Covers of this song are a dime a dozen, since it’s beloved by practically the whole universe. What is neat about it, though, is the fact that Leonard Cohen wrote about 80 verses to this song. Legend has it he has a giant binder of verses for this tune, and still adds to it!
Paul is all about opting for the “less done”, so we chose to throw in a verse that you rarely hear. It was new to me, but stunning nonetheless. Despite having a plethora of great lyrics to choose from, we finally condensed it down to four verses- We know you are all busy people! Give it a listen and let us know what you think! Also, keep us posted with any cover that YOU want to hear, and we’ll keep you posted with more, more, more!
