Response to 25 Things You Might Not Know About “Hallelujah”:
Mr. Cohen’s right— too many people sing this song. And faaar too many karaoke tv show contestant-types sing this song. It’s a good song, but it’s not even Cohen’s best song. It’s just one of those songs that people who don’t really listen to music much latch on to once somebody famous does a completely over the top version of it, like ‘I Will Always Love You’ or ‘When a Man Loves a Woman’. I first heard it back in the early nineties on the fantastic ‘I’m Your Fan’ tribute album (which everyone should immediately get as it is THE greatest tribute album ever recorded(well, to me anyway)) and always loved it, but certainly not more so than ‘Suzanne’, ‘So Long Marianne’, ‘Bird on a Wire’ or ‘Sisters of Mercy’, which are my personal favorites. I guess i’m glad that people like it, but i can’t help but think that most of them learn about music through American Idol, or buy one album a year at Wal-Mart. Make of that what you will.

My favorite was the woman (!) who’s main concern was healthcare going for Romney. I’m amazed every election cycle how many people claim to be undecided this far into the campaign! What, do they live in Amish country?
