Some songs may or not be earworms. I’m just one zombie, and this is only my opinion.
But some performances are more than just words and music; they are a perfect marriage of artist and medium, the songwriter and the singer combined, raising music to the highest of art forms.
Listening to this singer own this composition nearly moves me to tears. That’s why I picked the first version I found. I don’t think I could keep my cool through a second time.
Ladies and gentlemen, I offer you k.d. lang with complete ownership of Leonard Cohen’s gorgeous Hallelujah.
