3404. Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
From: Various Positions; Year: 1984; Genre: Folk Rock/Pop
I realize I'm a day late for picking one from Cohen, since he passed away the other day, but I didn't want to break my streak of Funky Fridays and plus, today seems like a better day to pick this, one of his most famous songs anyway; Woordenaar already did so on his blog.
I admit that I'm not well-versed in his music outside of this song, but I know I've heard many others he's written over the years; especially ones recorded by countless artists. Suffice it to say we lost an incredible artist whose impact will continue to be felt for many years to come.

Hear Hallelujah on YouTube.
