Recently, country music up-and-comer Tegan Marie put herself and her band on the spot and decided to see if they could cover Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
The tune has been covered so many times a book, “The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley & the Unlikely Ascent of ‘Hallelujah'” was written about it. There are 300 recorded versions of the tune and while most are pretty good, some aren’t.
Luckily for us, Tegan Marie’s falls in the first category. Seriously, get to the 3:20 mark.
