Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen


Now 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?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah is probably my favourite song of all time – but then there are so many songs…. 

This is a link to the version of the song on the Leonard Cohen Live in London  album – which is the album that sparked my love of Cohen's music and lyrics.

There have been many popular covers of Hallelujah but I think it is always special to listen to the person who wrote it, singing it.
