Cohen's "Hallelujah"

This is one of the best covers of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" that I've ever heard.

Yeah, that's John Cale. I have him singing it, audio, as he sang it on the Leonard Cohen Tribute Album I'M A FAN. Not my favorite rendition - but that's why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors! I love Rufus's version, kd lang's version, and Jeff Buckley's version. I don't like Bono's version or Cohen's own version. I now have 90 distinct songs in my Leonard Cohen songs folder & all but a dozen of them are covers, although I have more Leonard Cohen songs performed by Leonard Cohen in other folders. Of course there's an entire Judy Collins Cohen album, an entire Jennifer Warnes Cohen album and two different tribute albums.
