Musical Interlude: Hallelujah.

…the song sounds familiar because there’s a version in one of the Shrek movies. But it was first a Leonard Cohen tune.*

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

*My mother can’t stand Willie Nelson’s voice, but likes his songs. I feel the same way about Leonard Cohen’s productions. Bleaaaghargh.**

**Eventually, all my youtube musical interludes gravitate toward Concrete Blonde. “Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful, give or take a night or two.”
