please enjoy

(hell yes)

Leonard Cohen's song 'Hallelujah' (of which I love Jeff Buckley's version) is one of the best and most revered songs of the last 30 years. Well I've never shied away from the fact that I think David Bazan is one of the best singer/songwriters ever. So how awesome would it be if Dave covered 'Hallelujah?' With his own tweakings?

Hear for yourself.

The holy are the broken. Hallelujah.

Happy New Year.

I haven't had a chance to listen to Bazan's version you posted, but I'm sure it is great and I'll listen soon.
But I did want to say that, although I do love Jeff Buckley and his rendition of the song, he didn't write it. Leonard Cohen did.
