'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen

I much prefer classical music, but some more recent music is absolutely stunning and 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen is certainly one of those. I first heard it, I think, at the end of the first series of The O.C. and I made it my business soon afterward to get a copy of the Jeff Buckley version, the one used in The O.C.

Jeff Buckley - very moving (soundtrack only)
... see him singing it here

Rufis Wainwright - a strong and very distinctive voice

Leonard Cohen - the man himself sings it

... and finally from The O.C. Season 1 Final
