John Cale - Hallelujah

Nowadays "Hallelujah" is a standard known to millions, but for a while it was a lesser-known song on one of Leonard Cohen's lesser-known albums. That changed with this recording. John Cale heard Cohen perform it live and liked it so much he recorded it. Jeff Buckley's version, which brought the song to many people's attention, was based on this one.
