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

I believe it was Rufus Wrainwright's that was in 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.

Greatest cover ever recorded, simply because it's the ONE cover on the face of the earth which makes you think the original writer might as well have just given the cover artist the song!

Just watched a live performance, reverb on the vocals would have been nice but I nearly cried the second he started singing...

but i didn't, so there

My favorite cover ever, Cohen's wisdom channeled through a beautiful voice
