MUSIC - Claim it Back Now!!

Damn 'X Factor' and all it's ilk. In the words of 'Rage Against The Machine' we got to take the power back... Hallelujah is not supposed to be sung by talentless pop puppets in a vacuous display of over the top warbling and fist clenched emoting. It's to be done by Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, Kathryn Williams and people of that stature and craft. Above is Leonard Cohen performing the original and you wonder how it goes from this to it's current state.

In the words of Damien Rice 'Why do you sing Hallelujah, if it means nothing to you...'
