It's a pretty fucking good song. At least people didn't choose Hallelujah. Although you could argue that Jeff Buckley made it his own with such a phenomenal cover.

have argued this muchly and agree with you. i am in the middle on this one. whilst jeff buckley is one of my all time faves, it frustrates me (yet also impresses me greatly) that he managed to pretty much make the song his own.

the man was a pretenious wanker and amazing musician.

i am glad that Grace was his only official release.

he has been immortalised in me forever (although live at sin-e is the best fucking record).

Disagree.

It is a great version, and it was the introduction to the song for many people, but he has not made it his own.
Fortunately, that honour still belongs to Leonard Cohen.

I don't like the Various Positions versions much.
But live, it's a different beast entirely.
