John Cale would have beaten Jeff Buckley, but ok...

Ray Charles is another given for me.

Ray Charles and Handel
sounds like a day in the office, tbh
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Other: Cale.

Of these it's Ray, though I like the Eddie Cochran version almost as much (great guitar solo!)

Cohen.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Handel was my shoe in vote, then it was a tough decision between Charles & Cohen with the big L taking it. Good call on the Roches.

Ray Fucking Charles.
The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

Any of them but the Cohen song (no matter who performs it).

I'd go for John Cale's version. That said, with the song being trotted out every time my wife turns on XF, BGT or TV, I find it hard to listen to Hallelujah without cringing now.

The same applies to that lovely Adele song that Bob Dylan covered in that nasty old man's croak of his
