Downie's Hallelujah

Thumbs UpUnbeknownst to me, The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie recorded a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the movie "Saint Ralph". It sounds like Downie does the tune justice, adding to the incredible covers and almost-covers of this amazing song.

I can't wait to hear Downie's version. As for the other covers and pseudo covers by Jeff Buckley, Nick Cave, K-OS, K.D. Lang and others, I plan to share these with you all as part of my weekly Wednesday MP3. This Wednesday, we'll start with the best of the bunch, and that means Buckley.

Please send! I seriously hope this blog isn't being super closely monitored since I'm trying to get it as part of a Christmas gift for my sweetie. And he's posted, too! Eek!!!
