Hallelujah...the k.d. lang way

I may have posted this before, but it's worth watching again and again...and again!! k.d. lang singing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah at the 2005 Juno award show. Such an incredible performance...

So you got me curious about the song after watching the video. I always thought it was much older than it is but if you're interested here's the wikipedia info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hallelujah_%28Leonard_Cohen_song%29


Thanks Kim! How cool to read in that article what Cohen's partner, Anjani Thomas, said about another k.d. lang rendition:

"After hearing k.d. lang perform that song at the Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2006 we looked at each other and said, 'well, I think we can lay that song to rest now! It’s really been done to its ultimate blissful state of perfection'."

I hadn't heard that performance before, but just checked it out and couldn't agree more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYiMJ2bC65A
