Hallelujah (4:33)

Cover of Tidings

From Tidings and 4 other releases

“It’s, as I say, a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion… It’s a rather joyous song.” ~ Leonard Cohen, creator of the song, Hallelujah. He says: “I wanted to write something in the tradition of the hallelujah choruses but from a different point of view… It’s the notion that there is no perfection ~ that this is a broken world and we live with broken hearts and broken lives but still that is no alibi for anything. On the contrary, you have to stand up and say hallelujah under those circumstances. ” Canadian indie singer-songwriter Allison Crowe’s uniquely potent interpretation is heard on her album/CD, “Tidings”. http://music.allisoncrowe.com/track/hallelujah

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
