Regina Covering Hallelujah.

Recommended Posts

Many years ago I saw Leonard Cohen LIVE at The Albert Hall on his "I'm Your Man" Tour and it was very special, of course he sang the definitive "Hallelujah". Roll Eyes

I enjoy "Hallelujah" in most of its many forms but Regina's version is the first lady I have heard attempt it and she did very well. Wink

I thought Jeff Buckley's live versions were way over the top and far too melodramatic, but I enjoyed Rufus Wainwright's "Shrek" version. Cool

I have a neat version of "Chelsea Hotel" by Josh Ritter but again Regina's version is quite lovely and I agree with PC, that cello is very moving. Roll Eyes

"Love Profusion" doesn't do much for me though. Frowner

this cover is cool but as someone said early on.. leave hallelujah alone! find another song to cover! Wink

I still prefer by far Jeff's version but I'm his fan so..

Rufus version is also brilliant just because of his great voice.. and John Cale puts it nice and slow, I like it too! I actually dislike the original by Leonard Cohen.. it kind of bores me to death.. just kind of.. Wink
