I am obsessing over Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. I blame you, internets.

I've been obsessing over the different lyrics, and I think I prefer the live Cohen over the album version. I should decide if I'm going to cough up the cash to see him live when he's here... soon, if there are still tickets available.

Honestly, I think Cohen's biggest drawback, especially in the 80s, was his synthesizer. The lyrics are golden, but the backing music is a little bit... well, Cohen wrote a lot of it in his room on a keyboard, and it sounds like it. I like his voice, and I love his words, but he's better with a backing band.

But love is not a victory march - it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah.

Eh, I got the same link through matociquala, too, so it's not *all* your fault.

If I'm feeling vengeful, I'll just try to collect all 15 verse variations and sing them loudly at New Recipe night. :)

That is a fine fine thing to be obsessing over. I think you should thank the internets.
