Now on to this week’s Face off!! I’m going to be doing an early Christmas stand off, since I doubt many people will be on here Christmas Eve voting!

Who Did it Better? Hallelujah

I have to thank Mary over at Sophril Reads for this one! I was trying to think of a good stand off for Christmas and she put up the Pentatonix version for a 3 Days of Christmas Lyrics Challenge!!

I’m sorry for so many choices… but, there are way too many amazing people who have done a version of this song!!!

Leonard Cohen

VS

Jeff Buckley

VS

Rufus Wainwright

VS

Pentatonix

VS

KD Lang (write in vote!) so sorry to add MORE but thank you to Fraggle to opening my eyes… I wasn’t going to add write in votes of this one because there are SO MANY versions… but this one was too beautiful not to showcase.)

    1. Jeff Buckley is amazing… Hell, they ALL are!! That’s why I couldn’t narrow down ones to post! πŸ˜‚ I try to keep it at 3 or less… But, HOW DO YOU NARROW THESE DOWN??

    1. Well, Fraggle Rocking just got me to add another version if you want to check it out! It was too wonderful not to post… even though I promised myself that I would add more to this one since there were already 4! Ha ha!

  1. Do you have any idea how hard this one is????????? I didn’t care for the Cohen one. The Buckley one is soooo looonggg but so good. Rufus is great and Pentatonix is so cute and new. So, I’ve narrowed it down to Buckley and Rufus. Can I get two votes?

    1. p.s Leonard Cohen was in the audience for this recording at the Juno awards. After hearing KD Lang, he reportedly said he never needed to hear another cover of the song, and that the song should be retired for he had heard PERFECTION. I cried just watching it again now! soft bint that I am.

      1. That. Was. Beautiful. I’ve somehow never heard this version… Or maybe I have and I just don’t remember because I’ve probably heard about 50 different versions of this song! πŸ˜… But, this was defintitely amazing. KD Lang has AMAZING passion.
