Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley

Prev Next

Originally released by Leonard Cohen in 1984, Hallelujah has been interpreted by many others since- probably due to its unmistakable beauty. Tragic (yet exceptionally gifted) singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley recorded his monumentally famous cover version of the song as part of his one and only completed full length album ‘Grace’, which was released in 1994. To this day Buckley’s version is often mistaken as the original piece, its fame being aided by the covers inclusion on many prestigious top song lists by the likes of Rolling Stone and Time magazine.
