One of the greatest songs of all time, and not a bad cover of it, but you really need a certain kind of voice to pull it off. I just think it should be left alone after Buckley did it, no one can top that.

I wish Rufus Wainwright's version got more attention. It's my personal favorite.

Same. Everyone loves the Buckley version which is great, but Rufus' just gets more and more emotional as it goes.

i like it.

Trouble is, every cover of this song is always a cover of the Jeff Buckley version (in influence terms anyway). It's not a bad thing. But I find it a bit silly when people say they cover Leonard's original version without name checking Jeff, when they've probably been massively influenced by Jeff's version.

People continue to misinterpret this song to this day. This is about as appropriate for Christmas as a Pig Destroyer song.

Wasn't necessarily intended for Christmas, Dave just did the song and gave it to me to put on the site for everyone for free so and it's close to Christmas so I decided to make it a holiday exclusive.

Ah. That's different. As long as it's not meant as an xmas song.

Some of the contexts they put this song in are not appropriate for a song about a destructive sexual relationship.

Bazan's version takes the cake for me. Love both the original and Buckley's as well. Anyone looking for some real "haunting" Christmas music should check out David Bazan's Christmas music...ESPECIALLY "Silent Night" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"
