Jeff Buckley | Reviewer: Merr
The first time I heard Jeff sing this song was on an episode of House. I immediately went to the site and looked up Jeff and discovered that he had died at the age of 30. I was so sad that such a beautiful voice was no longer singing. However, as I listen to his Hallelujah, I realize that he will never be gone as long as we hear his version of Hallelujah. I've since listened to Leonard Cohen, k.d. lang, Rufus Wainwright sing their versions. I still prefer Jeff's version even though the other's versions were wonderful as well. Both k.d. and Rufus have such clear voices. I think Jeff's rendition has a lot more passion though.

the original is sang wonderfully by leonard cohens. dont get me wrong he sings this beyond amazing song really well but i feel jeff buckley's version is simply amazing. he really moves me with his voice i even get goosebumps! i prefer jeff buckleys version much more. RIP Jeff Buckley...thank you for touching my heart with your voice :)
Uplifting and sad at the same time | Reviewer: Steve | 1/15/10
I first heard this song on an episode of the West Wing. It is played when the secret service agent (Mark Harmon) is shot and killed in New york, and they have to tell CJ (Allison Janey)that he is dead. Great song !!

Beautiful, beautiful song. For three weeks long, this was all I'd sing. I love it, it's so pure and sweet. This is, without a doubt, the best version. He puts such soul into these lyrics, whereas Alexandra... No. It saddens me when people think of her when I mention this song. The first time I heard it, it was on Shrek. Hooked ever since :)

this song is awesome, without question the best version of it. but some of jeff buckleys other stuff is just in another league. only my opinion, but songs like lover you should've come over and grace are...just..i cant describe how good they are
makes you think about.; | Reviewer: memories
just listing to this song it brings tears to my eyes. it makes u think about the ones u lost in life and the ones you hope to find.
I take my hat off to jeff great lyrics and melody. a legend.
Alexandra's vesion is better for girls who want to learn the song but the original will always be better ♥

I still haven`t heard leonard`s yet , but I have the Rufus Wainwrite version on my PSP. I don`t think I spelled his name right. Anyway, his version is okay. Excuse me if there`s any incorrect grammer or whatever, I`m tired and I`m using my PSP to type. Peace out people.

this truly is one of the most utterly beautiful songs. Jeff Buckley was a musical genious. My dad used to play his music all the time when I was younger, back then I found it annoying but now I really appreciate and love his music.

Umm? | Reviewer: dan | 7/20/09
How is it even possible to down-play this version of the song? I'd easily venture my opinion that this is 10 times more powerful than the original. This is in my top 5 favourite songs of all time and i'd recommend it to anyone I know or don't know. Fantastically powerful and beautiful.
