I first posted a Brandi Carlile cover of "Hallelujah" here. But soon after, the video was taken offline by the powers that be. My friend calls them Youtube-Nazis. :)
Here's another video of Brandi Carlile's rendition of the Jeff Buckley version of "Hallelujah". Here she's playing the piano, while the previous video I posted has Brandi Carlile on guitar, accompanied by an orchestra. Nevertheless I am impressed by how different this version is from her usual acoustic cover of "Hallelujah". She takes this one song and it becomes a part of her, and it expresses how she feels at that moment, so that it is her song, even though many people have covered it along the years.
I love how it ends, with that anguished cry of Hallelujah.
Screw you, Youtube-Nazis!
