    Here is "Hallelujah" as sung by Leonard Cohen himself. From a London concert about two years ago. Love it or hate it there's no denying what a unique guy he is:

    After watching that video I wanted to find out more about the song. Wikipedia has it covered from head to tail and then some:

    Here's how NOT to sing it:

    Thanks for sharing. I hope Lee watched that as well. He needs to enunciate the verses as clearly as Cohen in order to communicate the poetry of those lyrics, IMHO. I notice Lee has a tendency to sometimes go a little "Springsteen" on us, if you know what I mean, and it's hard to make out the words.

    Totally agree. The words are critical and Lee needs to make them all count for maximum impact.
