There is instrumental music all over. The dance floor is ruled by electronic dance music. Others at home are unwinding and studying while listening to instrumental music. Despite the lack of lyrics, film scores can nonetheless make you feel strong emotions.
But does it still sound as wonderful with a cello in lieu of the singer?
Once you listen to Leonard Cohen’s rendition of “Hallelujah,” the pudding will speak for itself. The lovely dueling cellos gently perk up your ears and touch your heart.
For your ears, this is absolute delight.
Despite the 1984 original’s lackluster reception, Leonard Cohen has established himself as a phenomenon with his covers of the song Hallelujah. Most significantly, Jeff Buckley’s 1994 Alternative Rock rendition of this amazing song is what made it popular.
Seven years later, Shrek featured the original because it was such a hit.
Hallelujah has been covered by artists like Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, and Bob Dylan, but 2CELLOS’ audio-visual rapture is on an entirely different level. We challenge you to listen to the entire thing without sobbing even once. You can picture Jeff Buckley and Leonard Cohen looking down on them and grinning.
Croatian musicians Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2CELLOS, have a history of reinterpreting classic works. They play anything, including “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC and the Pirates of the Caribbean theme. They made history online for the first time with their 830 million+ view cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.”
