So I was sitting in the JCPenney photo salon yesterday and the movie “Shrek” was playing to entertain the little kiddies. I was not paying attention until I heard one of the greatest songs of all time coming from the movie. “Hallelujah”, a Leonard Cohen song, was being sung by some other guy. This song is probably one of the most covered songs ever. Here is Leonard singing it when he was 75 years old:
I heard my first LC song in Dennis’s basement in the late ’60’s. “Bird on a Wire”. I wish I was 1/2 as cool now as Leonard is at 75.
Leonard says KD Lang does the best cover of this song. Who am I to argue with him:
I gotta go…maybe I should get a hat.
