This song is so good it makes me shudder, even after having heard it thousands of times:

::throaty sigh::

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

Chorus:
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
And She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus

Well baby I've been here before
I’ve seen this room and I've walked this floor
(You Know)I used to live alone before I knew you
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Chorus

Well there was a time when you let me know,
What's really going on below,
But now you never show that to me do you?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew is Hallelujah

Chorus

Well maybe there's a God above,
But all I've ever learned from love,
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Chorus


Sorry about the posting volume ... I'm having fun redoing a project from scratch thanks to last week's data munching adventure. (But I have a system that listens to vowels and classifies how much your singing sucks!)
