Default Hallelujah

I love this version of the song and thought it was worth a share

Damn that last guy is a notch above the rest. Well sung here, a lot of artists just butcher it. Kurt Nilsen, that must be him.

I kind of forget how beautiful a song this is. It's also kind of mystical to me....how does a song like this exist...it moves me even when I'm not sure I understand the lyrics.

Yeah I feel the same. I don't actually get it. But the chord progressions are great, it's a very moving song when done well just from a musical standpoint.

A lot of emotion, a lot of power. It's awesome.

I think it's used in the wedding scene in Shrek, but song is from the 1980's and it's been famously covered several times.

On a smaller scale, it's like calling Johnny B. Goode, the "Back to the Future song."

Great song. I'm partial to the Jeff Buckley version:

The former editor of Vibe and Spin just wrote a whole book on the journey of the song Hallelujah. I put up a post here

And Shrek is a giant reason for this song's popularity.
