Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah - REVISED
I love this song and this version! However Jim (StorytellERdoc) and Leopard13 have also given me their favorites.(See comments) I like them all, but I have to say even tho I still prefer Jeff Buckley's version .. the women are hard to choose between, but Katherine Jenkins gave me GOOSEBUMPS! The addition of the choirs reinforces the emotion of the song for me.
Thank you for sharing guys. You can see that I added your favorite versions of Hellelujah below my original post.
Now my new favorite song to obsess over until tired of it... which means ...I can't get enough of it ...which means I will play repeatedly every chance I get... which means ... I will dream about it ...which means I will wake up hearing it in my brain at any point during the night if I sleep lightly or turn over ..which means I will hear it in the morning upon waking... which means because I have played this new favorite song so much ..family will hear it in their heads too ...which means they may have to wear ear plugs or close doors to save themselves .. I'm just sayin. :)
Oh and when I have time ..I will add these versions and others to my players ..so that I can go from one to the other and so on. Does anyone else do that if you are crazy about a song? Play it repeatedly? It's like I can't get enough of it and become one with the song ..hence why I dream about it. :)
Music is a powerful force .. at times ...moving beyond words ...soul speak.
