hallelujah

I needed lullabies tonight. For instance, Over the Rhine performing one of my favorite songs ~ Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." If the video quality bothers you, too (very pixelated), just close your eyes. Listen to Karin sing and Linford play.

I saw this on the All Songs Considered blog right after I read your post: http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2008/08/about_a_song_hallelujah_1.html.

Strange coincidence :)

Thanks for that link, Lindsay - those videos are great. Leonard Cohen's was awesome.

That NPR link goes to Brandi Carlile who performed Hallelujah at the Newport Folk Festival--which is where Over the Rhine went to make their NFF debut straight from the Glen. Do you know where the OTR version was recorded?

I'm sorry to say I don't know! But oh man, Brandi Carlile's version of "Hallelujah" is to die for. We heard it live in Houston. Johnny wants to play drums for her.
