This is what happens when the mainstream gets a hold of artists. Jeff buckley's name is now soiled because "that dreadlock guy" from american idol sang "Hallelujah." Anyone else as annoyed as I am?

If anything, this "dreadlock guy" (I don't watch American Idol) is "soiling" Leonard Cohen's name.

That was the Rufus Wainwright version, though.

I don't think I've heard the Jeff Buckley version on a movie or anything. =/

In fact the only other time I've heard that song in the media, other than Shrek, was Scrubs, and that was John Cale.

I heard that he did it rather well.
Besides, you can't soil Jeff Buckley's name. Whatever he did, he made it his own and I'm sure he would be honored that anyone would be inspired to cover his rendition of a song, or one of his own songs.
IMHO, Jeff Buckley was so awesome that no one can ruin what he accomplished no matter what because they will never be able to do it as well as he. He's one of my favorite performers/songwriters, and it's a damn shame that he died so young. More people should be exposed to him and his music.

No. And you're a tool for thinking something is bad just because more people discover it.

I think it's a good thing when good artists get publicity...o_O I mean, the more people that discover Buckley, the more that will be able to appriciate him and what he did for music.

Plus, that's not even a Buckley song.

i heard it on that show cold case before that movie. first time i heard it, it was great.
i need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah.

Jason Castro (dreadlock guy) did an amazing job singing Hallelujah. It was a great performance. He in no way soiled Buckley's name. (even though he didn't originally write it)
If anything, I would really like to hear a full cover of the song by Jason.

I think he did a great job.

He really did a good job. Even if he looks like a moron. I would say his version was much more Cohen-esque than the Buckley version.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

So THAT explains it! I'm sure some others have noticed this but in the last week or so his version of "Hallelujah" has become the most popular song on iTunes.. Which is something that struck me as kind of odd when you consider that The Grace came out in 1994..

I actually saw that episode... my girlfriend put it on TV... and I thought he was ok, and was possibly the best person I had seen on american idol... aside from ruben studard

KD Lang's version of Hallelujah is better IMO

and cohen is an amazing songwriter, but a horrifying singer
