WATCH: Sherry Vine’s Filthy Parody Of A Leonard Cohen Anthem

It’s just a lady sitting at her piano singing. Except the lady is drag superstar Sherry Vine and the song is her typically filthy take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

Appropriately titled “Hallelujah Piano Concerto in BJ Minor,” sample lyrics include: “You caught my eye at the mall / I followed you into the bathroom stall.” I mean, did Shakespeare ever write a more memorable couplet?

      I bet she can suck… but this song did not!

      I hate that my partner, who is semi-religious, loves to torture me with this stupid song sung by some dead dude… Jeff Buckley.

      I continue to point out to him that Buckley either killed himself or his agent killed him since he would have been unmarketable after trying to turn this trash into a pop song.

      Had it not been so disgusting, it would have been, or likely was, a memorable theme song for the Vatican enclave during the selective of Poo…errrr, Pope Francis!

      Jeez, guys, I know this is not the most serious piece of news, but your reporting is kind of illiterate. The original is not a religious anthem by any means. It’s an agnostic folk/love song by Leonard Cohen.

      @tdx3fan, given this, your irritation at your friend is really needless. If you listen to the lyrics, the author in fact openly questions the existence of god.

      And by the way, Leonard Cohen has not created a piece of trash in his career. One of the greats.

      I find it interesting how this song has been hijacked. While the original’s lyrics, written and sung by Leonard Cohen, have been changed many, many times (even by Cohen himself)the song isn’t about religion or Christianity. The song basically says that we each find our “hallelujah” in different ways. Some through religion, some through sex, etc.
      This remains one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite artists.

      Love this version very much.
