    Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xR0DKOGco_o

    I remember hearing this song in the first Shrek movie, I was kind of young to appreciate it back then, but just recently I heard it on a friend's iPod and realised how amazing it was. I'm not sure if this is the original version of the song, so if anyone knows who did the original, let me know.

    Has anyone else heard it? Or is there anyone heard it for the first time just now and wants to comment on it?

    The original was by Leonard Cohen, and it was much better, although this version is relatively ok.

    I heard this song on American Idol a few years ago when Jason [s:2tik2qkz]David[/s:2tik2qkz]Castro sang it, I thought it was a really nice and pretty sounding song. I kind of like it.

    Wasn't his name Jason Castro? I didn't really like his singing.

    The Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah is better, isn't it ?
