Covers: Brandi Carlile's "Hallelujah"

Something strange is happening: On iTunes' Top 100 Downloads chart, a 14-year-old classic is kicking the ass of several shitty '08 Top 40 songs. Jeff Buckley's brilliant cover of "Hallelujah" has miraculously become the most downloaded song in all of iTunes, thanks to its recent exposure on American Idol. I personally think Jason Castro's version of the song was completely worthless (whispered, lifeless, breathless), so I decided to post a cover of the song that's actually awesome and hasn't had much exposure yet. It's one of Brandi Carlile's acoustic covers if the song, and it's one of the Top 5 best versions of "Hallelujah" you'll ever hear.
