A Little Birdie On Downie's Hallelujah

cdIf you're a fan of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" or a fan of Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip, I implore you to read the entries in my Gord Downie's Hallelujah page. Not only is it a great story about an elusive song and successful search, but it's also the reason I'm running 10k tonight.

A little birdie in the know about such things wrote me an email today. In Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein fashion, my very own Deep Throat has revealed that the Saint Ralph Soundtrack will likely get released in the near future. Here's the top secret correspondence I received with one paragraph removed for reasons that will soon become obvious.

What I'm about to tell you I ask that you keep to yourself and not divulge, not even say it's from an anonymous source.

*** content removed ***

Now here's what you can divulge from an anonymous source, it is likely that the soundtrack will get a release or at least a download release in the near future.

If all goes smoothly, you'll be the first to know.

This answers a question I get quite often. When I know more, I'll share it here.

I'm a huge Tragically Hip AND Leonard Cohen fan (and solo Downie). Furthermore, I'm starting to build up a small collection of "Hallelujah" covers. This would be a diamond in the crown for sure. I know you did all the hard work and all, but if I really begged, would you consider sending me a copy too?

I saw St.Ralph back in the fall of 2004 i believe and fell in love with this movie.My sister Linda was dying of Cancer and i happened to be running a 10 miler that Aug. and i dedicated the race to her...Late Sept.I stumbled across this movie. After watching it...i told all my family and running buddies about it...3 months later they were talking about it in Runners World.I too looked all over for the music..to no avail...If there is anyone out there that could send me this...it would mean a lot to me.I use Leonard Cohen's version...while running...but i wish i had Downies..and the other songs from that Movie.
My sister died that following winter...i did p.r. in that race and gave her my metal..only to get it back after she died...Pancreatic Cancer is brutal.St.Ralph is my Favorite Movie...very sentimental to me.
