I'm not a fan of Jeff Buckley at all. In fact, I don't get what people see in him. If he hadn't died young but instead had simply quit the music business to go be a tailor in Bolivia, I don't think his music would be anywhere near as well remembered.
That said, his cover of "Hallielujah" is brilliant.
Here's another great cover: The Dickies
- Nights In White Satin
. I'm a huge Moodies fan but The Dickies take 5 minutes of overblown pomp and distill it down to 2 minutes of shrieking piss and vinegar.
