Hodgepodge 2/365 - Hallelujah

Ever since I posted this video on Facebook a few days ago

I've had Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" circling around my brain.

Two friends suggested different renditions:

K.D. Laing:

and Jeff Buckley:

But really—this may or may not be true—the first time I really paid attention to this amazing tune was thanks to Jake Shimabukuro. Here's his instrumental version. You decide which one you think is "best." Maybe it's a matter of mood . . .

(And heck, you might just want to go right back to the source. I came to the party late, considering Cohen first recorded this in 1984.)
