Unapologetic progressive. Fearless activist. Plucky liberal.

"Hallelujah"

Not the “Hallelujah” chorus, which I also love, but the one originally written by Leonard Cohen. I first heard Rufus Wainwright’s cover on the “Shrek” soundtrack, and in the years since I’ve found other great versions, from Justin Timberlake to Allison Crowe. It’s one of my top five favorite songs of all time.

The best part of my day was finding this version by the Canadian Tenors, with a guest appearance by Sarah McLachlan. I could listen to it over and over. It’s just stunning:

  1. I’m partial to Jeff Buckley’s version.
