I have loved this song for years, by many different singers, and my favorite has always been the Rufus Wainwright version.  But this one makes for some close competition!   :music:      


Ryan Robbins [Hallelujah] Acoustic -



:clap:  :drool:  :fallover:

Great high note at the end, too!  :D

It is a great song.


I have to admit I'd never heard it before The West Wing's "The Two Cathedrals" but it's been a favorite since

^ Which version did they play? Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen?


Here is Rufus for comparison:

Jeff Buckley -- and I was wrong. it was the Season 3 finale "Posse Comitatus", not the "Two Cathedrals". I always remember the other, more strident anthem of Posse Comitatus.

I'm well into S2 of my T:SCC marathon, and found Lena Heady's shyly mumbled first line of Las Maņanitas charming.    :)

Here's Teryl Rothery singing at a convention, where one fan gets way more than he ever bargained for!  It's borderline NSFW, but all in fun.  :lol:

She is a total riot!  "I don't bite.  I nibble a little." :howling:  And the absolute best part is Cliff Simon and Carmen Argenziano in stitches from start to finish! :spew:
