25 Songs, 25 Days (Day 21)

That is impossible!

I have different songs for different moods. I would find it absolutely impossible to choose one song over another.

But I gotta play by the rules I guess so, with enormous reluctance, I will pick a song…

Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah (1994)

Originally written by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, released in 1984, you can Google endlessly the various interpretations of the meaning of the song, (here for example), but for me, Buckley’s version is all about sex!

Cohen grouchily groaned his way through the song, his rendition void of the raw emotion and passion that Buckley brought to the table.

Buckley’s version, with its melancholy tone, its weeping guitar riffs, his tortured voice and breathing portrays the pain, suffering and vulnerability of love, and was described by Buckley  himself as “a hallelujah to the orgasm”.

In 2004, Time magazine declared that Buckley’s version “exquisitely sung,” adding “Cohen murmured the original like a dirge, but … Buckley treated the … song like a tiny capsule of humanity, using his voice to careen between glory and sadness, beauty and pain… It’s one of the great songs.” I am 100% in agreement with Time on this!

I listen to this song and I get shivers, tingles and yes… I get aroused! It’s my ‘go-to’ sex song to get me in the mood.

Perhaps that is why, if forced to choose a favourite song, I opted for this one… because it gives me those pleasurable feelings…

I am a woman with a very healthy sexual appetite after all, in case you might have missed that somehow, or you haven’t been paying attention!

Let’s add into the mix that he was quite a beautiful looking young man and its safe to say this is one song that will always turn me on.

Ciao!

  1. “I am a woman with a very healthy sexual appetite after all, in case you might have missed that somehow, or you haven’t been paying attention”

    Hmmm, that aspect of you passed me by completely. I think I need to go back and re-read some of your posts to see where I went wrong.

  2. Have enjoyed this journey through your musical tastes- It’s been a grand trip.
    Never thought of ‘Hallelujah’ as sexy- so I’m either dead from the waist down or need another listen. Anyway, doesn’t Leonard Cohen sing everything in a monotone, as if he’s bored by the sound of his own voice? Buckley wins every time 🙂

  3. Ok, well first, I didn’t realize your different sites had different content, lol. I’m slow sometimes, sorry! *followed*
    And as for this song, damn…I clicked the link and listened to this version…I am hearing this song with new ears! This rendition is so different from what I’ve heard before and wow, yeah, that’s sexy. His voice, his mouth, the words- I felt like I should be dancing horizontally under satin sheets. So lovely, thanks!

      • Ha ha, I’m there for anything Skarsgard would want! 😛
        Yes, I want to listen again but I shouldn’t. Lol!
