At Christmas, two versions of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' occupied the first and second place in the UK singles chart
. The number one slot was taken by X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke; in second place, thanks to an internet campaign, was the lovely and haunting version by Jeff Buckley
(Cohen's version came in a number 36). But more lovely
than even Jeff Buckley's version of 'Hallelujah' is this song
by his father, Tim Buckley, first aired on, of all places, The Monkees TV show (that's Micky Dolenz's voice introducing him).
Now I really must get back to work...
