Sometimes it takes a while for a song to catch on. Take the case of Leonard Cohen’s composition Hallelujah.” First released as part of the Canadian singer-songwriter’s 1984 album Various Positions, Hallelujah found little success at first. It was then honed over the course of several years of live performances, where it caught the attention of Welsh musician John Cale. John Cale recorded his own cover of the song using new lyrics by Cohen, and it was released as part of a tribute album called I’m Your Fan. This tribute album made its way to American singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley, who then went on to feature the song in his live sets. It became an instant favorite, and Jeff Buckley recorded it for his debut 1994 album Grace. Produced by Andy Wallace, the Jeff Buckley version of Hallelujah received more attention after the singer’s tragic passing, and then went on to become for many the definitive version of the song. In 2004, Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah was included in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" at Number 259. It was released as a single in 2007, ten years after Jeff Buckley’s death, and it peaked at Number 1 on the US Billboard Digital Songs chart.

    I thought it was a different rendering. But it will suffice, for now.

    A real tribute to the late Leonard Cohen, and of course, Jeff Buckley, whose talent is sorely missed. Maybe they're doing it together now?

    Great version, no pingy sound in the back like others.

    "Karaoke Version" is with out a doubt the greatest karaoke co. I've ever discovered. I love the fact that you can purchase trax without any vocals. Please keep up the great work, and don't change your style. I've purchased atleast 6 other selections from you. Have a lovely holiday season? ~Mark

    The sound quality is great and the solo guitar is a nice touch. The only thing I would change is the long Intro

    to judge the version here NOT the original or Buckley's - this is a pretty perfect backing track version of Buckley's rendition

    Beautifully done with a different flavor from Cohen's original; this one is emotionally evocative of pain, despair and hope. Cohen is more coldly intense. Both versions are great for different moods.
