Re: Hallelujah on UK X-Factor (all threads merged here)

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2008/dec/18/popandrock-christmas Most crucial part of that is: "One version that is rarely praised is Cohen's own, hamstrung by its chintzy 80s production.

image on Songs of Love and Hate album

Hi guys, what a pleasant place this is. On the web, is there the image that's on the Songs of Love and Hate album where there's a picture of Cohen and the words 'They locked up a man who wanted to rule the world the fools they locked up the wrong man.'
