I'm currently listening to different versions of hallelujah, Marc Anthony, Dean Martin, and Tatyana Ryzhkova, all on YouTube.

If you mean Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, I did that once. I wrote the following review. It was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, although it's partly pompous. And I no longer guarantee any facts.

Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
Actually I listened to 5 different versions of it. The strange thing is, no-one covers Cohen's version - they cover what people assume is Jeff Buckley's version, but they are wrong - it's John Cale's! I believe John Cale sang it on Shrek, but wasn't signed up to Dreamworks, so Rufus Wainwright's version ended up on the CD/DVD soundtrack. Anyway, John Cale, while professing to be a Cohen fan, deleted Cohen's verses 3 & 4 (out of 4) and replaced them with three of his own, one of which is sexually explicit and blasphemous (if you like something, why rewrite it?). This offending verse was omitted from Shrek, people assume, because of its racy nature, but I like to think it was out of good taste (his other verses are very good, though). It contains the words "the holy dove is in you", which Rufus Wainwright mishears - he sings "the holy dark"??? (or maybe it's "the holy duck"!).
So my 5th favourite is Rufus Wainwright, who is a nobody who thinks all you have to do is relay a tune with a lot of vibrato, and the words and the emotion are of no importance to a song. My fourth favourite is John Cale because he is not much better than Rufus Wainwright. Third favourite has to be Jeff Buckley, I'm afraid - it's way too slow, there's a technically crappy guitar solo in the middle, and he tries to wail some of the Hallelujahs in a way that makes me jump out of my seat and simply doesn't work. Cohen can't sing to save his life, he has an obsession with poor rhymes: "what's it too yer, hallelujer?", and I'm not too keen on the musical arrangement, but I can't deny him credit for his own song. K d lang is my favourite, although her singing is too sweet at times.
Other variants are "the only thing I learnt from love was how to shoot somebody who outdrew yer" compared with "the only thing I learnt from love was how to shoot at someone who outdrew yer". The second [I can't remember if it's Cale's or Cohen's any longer] makes far more sense to me. It's a song about losing at love. If you are losing, you shoot at them and miss, you don't shoot them. The first is Buckley, and Lang follows Buckley, unfortunately, although she's got the good taste to omit the holy duck verse.

I hate that it's a song about love being a losing game, yet everyone sings it as a power hymn. When Cohen died, I wondered with apprehension who would offer us up the first new version. It turned out to be Andre Rieu. What I wrote about him on FB is unprintable here.

Or did you mean the Leo Robin & Clifford Grey song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjgF971gAjg

I'm listening to guitar music by Peter Sculthorpe, a very underrated Australian composer. Check out Earth Cry as a good introduction.

"Beleza" cd "Just for Fun" (www.belezamusic.com) "Beleza" is a husband and wife duo, and we heard them Saturday night at the "Old Theatre" in Oriental. They sang mostly Brazilian music, and they were quite good. (.....and she was quite pleasant to look at!)
