Aurelio Voltaire - Hallelujah

Postby Goldin » Thu Aug 21, 2014 9:30 pm

Hardly believe that's true, but here's the brand new Hallelujah cover - by Aurelio Voltaire, one of the finest gothic rock artists:

This is a cover of a song by Leonard Cohen called "Hallelujah." I've loved this song for years and lately I've found myself singing it quite a lot at karaoke. Most importantly, after years of admiring this song, I finally had a moment when I completely understood the lyrics. I don't generally do covers, but when a song comes along that so precisely corresponds with what I'm feeling, well... a cover is born. No one will ever top Mr. Cohen's version, but this homage does come straight from the heart. I hope you enjoy it!
I had a pleasure to attend his first concert in Russia on June 11, where I took these videos (be sure to check them out, Voltaire is a great showman)
and he took this selfie.

In my secret dream all the covers are sorted/linked by title :D
In the meantime here is another Hallelujah, with ukulele:
