Hallelujah 哈利路亚 – Alexandra Burke

“Hallelujah” is written by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, originally released in 1984, It’s said Leonard Cohen wrote about 80 verses of it, and performed, recorded, cover versioned by many singers such as John Cale, Jeff Buckley and gradually became successful. There are over 300 versions, the meaning of it can be interpreted variously according to the verses used. It can be sorrowful, bittersweet or uplifting etc. I quite like this version sung by the new British star Alexandra Burke – it’s very uplifting! Here are the lyrics


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

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

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah



音乐这样展开,4,5 小降(G小调)大升越 (A大调)
挣扎中的大卫王在谱写哈利路亚 (赞美神)
哈利路亚 哈利路亚
哈利路亚 哈利路亚



哈利路亚 哈利路亚
哈利路亚 哈利路亚

It’s uplifting cries from someone who, after experiencing big confusions and having a breakthrough in understanding, flares out from bottom of the heart Hallelujah- the eulogy and praise to God!
