Saturday night I completely blanked on Jeff Buckley's name at my 4th of July party. Later as we walked down to the Venice pier to watch the fireworks in Marina Del Rey, we heard a couple of street musicians doing this song, originally by Leonard Cohen, but covered many times, significantly, by Jeff Buckley, here.

"Hallelujah" Jeff Buckley.

Jeff Buckley is my all-time favorite musician. I can't listen to him often, but when I do... waterworks.

This is the best cover of this song ever. I mean, I like it more than the original, but I'm biased.

Thanks for posting this. Now for some Kleenex.

Yeah. I briefly dated his widow, the woman for him he wrote the album "My Sweetheart The Drunk."

She was one, too. Hence the briefly.

Your er... *romantic social life* has been a complicated thing, no?

I love that song and that cover very much.
