Brandi Carlile – Hallelujah

Brandi Carlile covers Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"
for my money, she's better than Jeff – the version from her visit to KCRW is devastating.

many thanks to my friend T. for introducing me to Brandi via her powerful The Story

  1. @ cranky – we know you just like to be contrary. ;P@austin and electric – glad you like her – Brandi is very gifted. check more of her videos @ Google video and her music at her site@ stephel – the version in Shrek is by Rufus Wainwright. I posted it once, check my Hallelujah tag

  2. It's funny, I remember having this convo with you a couple years ago because I was also saying I don't like too many female singers these days. but although I stand by favoring men's voices, soon after I posted that I started realizing that I did like more female artists than I was aware of and found a lot more I liked too.

  3. Nah, I'm not bein ornery!! I might even prefer Rufus' version too. Nothing against Brandi, maybe I am just more familiar with the other versions. or maybe I prefer the subtlety of their versions to the more powerful emotional delivery here. I don't know.
    WXPN has been playing Brandi for a couple years now. But I always get her mixed up with Nicole Atkins and one or 2 others. Oh there's a chick named Carsie Blanton. Brandi Carlile, Carsie Blanton, see?

  4. @cranks – I'm just teasing, you know. 'tis a free country and you have a right to choose your own favorite version of "Hallelujah"…for now

  5. (late comment – sorry) Not bad. Too embellished? And I like Brandi Carlile fine. Who am I to say, but Hallelujah sung by KD Lang is 100% awesome. Mostly, I really want Brandi Carlile's boots. If anyone knows what brand (hee) they are, please let me know!
