Happy New Year's Eve! It's the final day of the Top 2000 party!

Hi there everyone and a happy new year's eve to you!!!  It's the final day of the Top 2000 party!

The song I chose for today's page is the late Jeff Buckley's 1994 cover of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah." It comes in at #68 on the list of the Top 2000 songs of all time. 

There are a lot of different ideas of what the meaning of this song is.  "Hallelujah" to me, is about the complicated nature of love and relationships. I first became aware of "Hallelujah," when Jason Castro sang a short but moving version on American Idol.  Since then, I've heard many versions, and it's become one of my favorite songs.  The lyrics are so bittersweet, and Jeff Buckley's tender version is stunning.  Check it out here...


Here's the journal page I created for "Hallelujah..."

Here's a link to the full lyrics, and to Jeff Buckley's official site.  If you are interested in Jason Castro's version that's here.

If you want to see what the other participants have created for today's portion of the list, click here to go to Marit's Blog.

I hope you have enjoyed the Top 2000 party!  Being a music lover, it's been super fun for me to take this week at the end of the year and pay tribute to music.  I want to say a HUGE thank you to Marit, for hosting this party for the fourth year in a row!  Thanks so much to you for visiting!
