COHEN’S HALLELUJAH.

I’ve heard this song before.

Events have come together these past days that have brought it to my mind’s forefront.

I’ll never hear it again without the associated memory of Kate McKinnon playing it on Saturday Night Live as the somber way to end the skits about Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency.

Here you have a cover by Pentatonix.

Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, made me aware of this cover today.

Enjoy!

Nothing about Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – the original version of the song Cohen recorded for his 1984 album “Various Positions” – leads you to conclude that it would go on to become one of pop music’s most durable compositions.

Not the rinky-dink keyboard tone. Not the singer’s low, dry croak. And certainly not the lyric full of stark biblical imagery.

Yet in the years leading up to Cohen’s death this week at age 82, “Hallelujah” attained the kind of pop-cultural saturation we more commonly associate with songs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, to name one star who quickly mourned Cohen’s passing on social media.

“A spirit and soul beyond compare,” Timberlake tweeted.
