Leonard Cohen As Tired Of "Hallelujah" Montages As Everyone Else

"I was just reading a review of a movie called Watchmen that uses it, and the reviewer said 'Can we please have a moratorium on Hallelujah in movies and television shows?' And I kind of feel the same way. I think it's a good song, but I think too many people sing it."

Great interview with Leonard Cohen in the Guardian; check it out.

Long as the ones with "Walkin' On Sunshine" are here to stay.

(shuddering) The use of that song was the least worst part of that scene. (more shuddering)

Remember when it clicked that it was Cohen? At first we were distracted by the nipples and the pelvis thrusting and the belly slapping. Then came the chorus, then the giggles and then the shame? Remember our nights together Katie, scored by black choirs and SHAME? <3

God spare me from having to ever hear his lugubrious, droning monotone ever again. I once almost killed a roommate over "Suzanne."

Praise Yahweh.

"Can we also please just delete all the old popfactor blogs that reference the lyrics," Cohen added..

But it's so effective at eliciting emotion! For example: I heard it while in Starbucks last week, and it made me genuinely sad. See?
