amazing k.d.

I'd almost forgotten how astonishingly good k.d. lang is. Then on New Year's Eve, Mr S. turned on PBS for the Tony Bennett "Duets" special. Terrific all the way through, but the absolute highlight in our collective opinion was the segment with Tony and k.d. Then last night when I was catching up on blogs I found Lucky's post with links to different versions of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Here's k.d. If that doesn't break your heart then lift up the pieces and make them whole, I don't know what can.

But that's the kind of song that sticks in your head for a long time, so maybe you would rather listen to k.d. and Tony.

Needless to say, I spent the rest of the evening listening to YouTube clips.

I have the Leonard Cohen version of that song and love it. Thanks for kd's, too.
