Review about Jeff Buckley songs
Bible stories | Reviewer: Roger
    ------ About the song Hallelujah performed by Jeff Buckley

The first two verses of this classic are Bible stories. It starts out with David, who played a harp and whose heart pleased The Lord. But King David was also a man, he fell for his neighbor's wife and stole her. The second half of the verse transports and is inclusive of stories from David to Samson, but is really about all the Old Testament stories about the pitfalls of lust and love, and the price that women can extract from their men.
The rest of the song builds on this universal human love story of rejection and betrayal.
It is a song that leaves you thinking about your lost loves.

Wonderful Jeff | Reviewer: Steven1874
    ------ About the song Hallelujah performed by Jeff Buckley

This beautiful, wonderfuly thought provoking song, for me does what so very few songs do. It draws in our enquiring minds with bueatifuly balanced, mysterious lyrics, giving seed to further inner thought, thought that for some, may be among the deepest, most insightful and spiritually profound they have. If he or she, anybody, arrives at a meaning of such a song as this, It's safe to say it's arrived at more through personalising the song, relating the lyrics to ourselves as we attempt to find context in our experience, than it is by considering what the writer was thinking about. Mr Cohen may have had his meaning, but he gave us such wonderfully ambiguous lyrics, that anyone who silently thinks on this songs meaning works out the right answer. For me its a man lamenting his percieved faliure in love, knowing that in love was the closest he has come to God or heaven. This powerful song can change a person, but no bad could ever, ever come from it. It has made me a better man.

Just wondering | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song So Real performed by Jeff Buckley

I always think this is an ode to his father and a foreshadowing of his own coming death. Even though it could be about a lover I interpret the lyrics to be about Jeff being torn between his life on Earth with his mother and a chance to reunite and make music with his father in the afterlife.

my understanding of the song | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Hallelujah performed by Jeff Buckley

I think the song teaches us to praise GOD in whatever situation we are.The bible says there is no condemnation for those who are in christ that in the spirit and not in the flesh. king david knows how to appease GOD everytime he does a wrong thing,that doesn't mean he takes GOD for guaranted but he just doesn't allow the devil to make him feel condemned eventhough he always admits his sins by confessing his sins and praising GOD.it is a lesson that christians must learn that we shouldn't feel condemned and rejected for our sins but we should rather receive boldness to confess our sins and praise GOD in whatever situation we find ourselves
be it good or bad. We should Also forgive and not to revenge.

tanish goodbye from ur life | Reviewer: pooja to tanish
    ------ About the song Last Goodbye performed by Jeff Buckley

Hi babe, I don't know why I am writing this, because I really hope that this letter never gets to you, because if it does that means I am dead. It also means I never had time to show you just how much I really did love you. you have shown me what love is and what it feels like to be loved. Every time you kissed me and our lips touched so softly, I could feel it. I got the same magical feeling as our first kiss. I could feel it when our hearts get so closely and they are beating as one. You are the beat of my heart, the soul in my body; you are me, because without you I am nothing. I love you, shona, You are the person I know I could turn to when I needed help , you are the person I looked at when I needed to smile and you are the person I went to when I needed a hug. When I am away, it is like I have left my soul at your side. shona, I want to say something and I mean this more than I ever did before. You were the love of my life, the boy of my dreams. Just because I have left away does not mean I am not with you. I'll always be there looking over you, keeping you safe. So whenever you feel lonely, just close your eyes and I'll be there, right by your side. I will always remember the very first time we met, the very first time my lips touched your lips, the very first time you wrapped your arms around me and rested your head on my shoulder. Your smile your way of looking at me will always be fresh in my memories. I still have some hope deep in my heart that someday my undying love will bring you back in my I know things will never be the same but …. I just can’t stop myself .. I still love you.. I still yearn for your love.It’s been a long time when I saw your lovely face; no matter for how many more days I won’t get to see you still your memories and my love for you will never fade away. No matter we will meet in second year but,
There are so many unanswered questions in my mind that sometimes it forces me to approach you to get the answers and say a final goodbye to you. At the same time I want you to come to a realization where my undying love for you will make you come to me. Sooner or later.. It doesn’t matter .. I am still waiting for you… and will always will. No matter you come to me or not.. I will never have any regrets in life of loving you… of holding you in my arms of dreaming to be with you forever..till the time I am alive..
Your expression of love was just saying “I love you” but you never proved it with your actions that you actually love me. You have lost the respect in my eyes of the number of lies you tell me every day, You would remember about missing “romance” in the relationship but you would never choose to show or express of care and love. I sincerely wish you to have someone else who shares the same dreams, towards life.
BECAUSE I AM NOT THE ONE FOR YOU.
I guess the only thing that went wrong is me falling in love with you and the No one is to blame. Not you, nor me, nor whoever else is sharing you with me.be happy and goodbye from your life. Khushi to tumi shona last I love you and with it goodbye also

    ------ About the song Hallelujah performed by Jeff Buckley

This song is so touching and I feel like it really captures the beauty of praying, love, and breaking faith. I cried when I heard this, and when sung in the right pitch by the right voice, it would break anybody down in their tracks. This song is beautiful and sorrowful, wonderful and terrible. This song is moving in a way that can not be described.

JB put his heart and soul into these tunes. He sang like his life depended on it. One tune and I'm refreshed from all that horrid music they make me listen to at the grocery store. Eternal thanks JB.
