30 Days Meme: Day 1

01. your favorite song

Well, maybe there’s a God above /But all I’ve ever learned from love /Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
It’s not a cry that you hear at night /It’s not somebody who’s seen the light /It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah- Jeff Buckley

Yeah, I know Leonard Cohen originated this song. But I love the changes that Buckley made to the song. Where it ends is incredibly haunting. I was first introduced to the song in Shrek, but that version was quickly replaced by the Buckley cover. It is by far the best*

*Also give the K.D. Lang version from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and Justin Timberlake/Matt Morris cover from Hope for Haiti Now a shot.

What’s your favorite song?
