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 posting this... haha i was about to post that link too from above! :)
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.:)
