Today’s post in honor of both Sunday and National Poetry Month.
Tim Minchin, performing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with Terry (Jerry?) Quinn:
And yes, it’s definitely poetry, because for those five minutes, Minchin and his partner made that small bar a church.
(for the record, Minchin was correct that Rufus Wainwright performed the song for the Shrek soundtrack; John Cale has covered it, though, as well–his appears on the Scrubs soundtrack)
Update, 5/20: thanks to Georgie, who notes Minchin’s duet partner as Geraldine Quinn.Tags: bar, church, hallelujah, john cale, leonard cohen, national poetry month, poetry, rufus wainwright, scrubs, shrek, sunday, tim minchin
