Song of the day

Singer Jeff Buckley died at the age of 30 in 1997, way too young, way too soon.

He was famous in New York City's East Village for covering a wide range of artists' songs and had completed one studio album, Grace. He was working on new material for My Sweetheart the Drunk, which has been released posthumously, at the time of his death.

Probably his most famous song is his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," which he makes his own with haunting, soulful vocals. This song, though, "Everybody Here Wants You," has long been my favorite.
