It was never as good live as it was on the record, imo. The recorded version doesn't get much more perfect than that.

Couldn't agree more. The most beautiful thing I've ever heard.

In the same class:

One
The First Time

Fake Plastic Trees- Radiohead


It's a short list.

The First Time by U2?

*gets a little excited about the prospect of having found someone who shares her feelings on the greatness of the song*

this is definitely a great song. i heard it a couple weeks ago, and had the distinct impression that i'd heard the song somewhere, in a movie...i remembered it being sad and touching and dramatic...i looked it up, and it was definitely in shrek 1, lol. buckley's version isn't the one on the soundtrack, but i think they used an edited version of his in the movie.

nonetheless, yeah it goes right up there with one, and the first time. however, nothing has yet to beat all i want is you. for instance, i will never enforce a no talking rule during hallelujah

Wasn't that Leonard Cohen's version (which was the original one) on Shrek?

*edit* I just checked. Rufus Wrainwright.

Ah, ok, been a while since I'd seen Shrek. I kinda though it sounded too goo to be Cohen...

One of the most beautiful, and yes, perfect, songs ever, I had tears in my eyes the first time I heard it.

i've seen this song on so many tv shows lately - to count - The O.C. (a couple of times), scrubs, without a trace, the west wing, probably more. most use it as a the ending to an episode/season.

In other news, i can play the whole rufus wainwright version of this song on the piano now (with a jeff buckley version interlude thrown in) if anyone wants the chords, i can email, its really easy to play.

and also arguably the only song of his I actually find listenable
come on, I'm not the biggest Grace fan either but Lover You Should've Come Over (before being butchered by Jamie Cullum) was pretty fucking brilliant.

And Mojo Pin and Dream Brother are beautiful. And anyone who call pull off two songs as utterly different as Corpus Christi Carol and Eternal Life one after the other on their album deserves some credit.

He's not really my thing personally, but there is more behind his legend than Hallelujah.

You'll love this if you don't already know:

The band had just been to see Jeff Buckley play a set, and when they got back into the studio, Thom recorded the vocals in two takes and broke down in tears.
