Re: Campaign: Get Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in the UK charts!

does anyone know - is there any way to purchase without a credit card (in person - at a store)? i've got some HMV gift vouchers - i'd be willing to use them for this good cause. what exactly should i ask for? according to the simon mayo show on weds, leonard's version is at number 42 in the charts. ...

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

that griffin guy has got a good voice - but his `humorous` lyrics fail to excite me. maybe one has to be a soccer fanatic to appreciate them. changing the words can be creative and fun when one master salutes another - e.g. noël coward reprising cole porter's `let's do it...` (discussed on radio 4 a...

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

hmmmm...an interesting POV. i saw one of jls's mothers on tv and she revealed that he's taking a sabbatical from studying theology at university. so it's possible that (schooled in the pentacostal tradition?) jls might be able to rival alexandra in the God stakes. i'm pleased to disclose to the boar...

allan ahlberg picks leonard for desert island treat

here's katherine jenkins's `defence` regarding her bowdlerised version : ...Her favourite track on the new album, she says, is Cohen's "Hallelujah". "I love that piece," she says. "It makes me cry."
