CBC Radio 2's 49 Tracks included "Hallelujah", but it's the cover by K.D. Lang. I'm sure the cover by Gord Downie was ineligible in that it's the best kept secret in all the land.
Gord Downie's "Hallelujah" has taken me on quite the trip. I've got an entire category devoted to the subject. I hear from folks on a daily basis, people who have seen Saint Ralph and want this song. Back in August, my source assured me that a proper release was materializing. I'm not holding my breath, nor do I really care, considering I've got a copy of the unreleased soundtrack.
Back in August, when I got the tip about the release of Gord Downie's "Hallelujah", I also learned about One Week, a new film by the people behind Saint Ralph. It sounds really good and it's got a great trailer.
Watch this trailer for One Week and spot the Gord Downie cameo.
