Hallelujah Battles..

So in the cruddy world of reality tv generated pop stars(ho-hum) that has the affront to call itself entertainment, the latest assault on our UK charts is a murdered version of the sublime Hallelujah originally by Mr Leonard 'smiler' Cohen. As a protest, us cool dudes are refusing to allow the butchery of some of the world's most beautiful songs and have been downloading the spine-tingling Jeff Buckley cover in a bid to keep the heinous X-factor from claiming the coveted Christmas Number One(tm!) spot.Facebook groups are rounding up members and emails have been sent. Fingers crossed!

Listening to Radio4's The Now Show, I heard the brilliant Mitch Benn sing this spoof which amused me muchly. I was so pleased to find it had been uploaded to t'tube! Whoop! Very clever man that he is.

Oh god no! Not Hallelujah, is nothing sacred?

being ridiculously out of touch with what's happening in the world I had no idea that this travesty was taking place. To think, a generation of children will grow up thinking that Hallelujah is by TV Generated Popstar. Like people I gre up with thought American Pie was by Madonna!
