Click here for a more in-depth explanation of "Hallelujah": You can also find the podcast wherever podcasts are downloaded! First things first. You probably didn’t know who actually wrote “Hallelujah” before you watched this video, but you likely recognize it from Shrek or any number of shows that needed a sad song quickly. Well, here’s the thing: those guys may not really understand the meaning of “Hallelujah.” The original writer, Leonard Cohen actually considers it “a very joyous song” and cites the last verse where he sings, “And even though / It all went wrong / I’ll stand before the Lord of Song / With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah.” My Patreon: Podcast on iTunes: My Instagram: My Twitter: My website: My Podcast Website: Disclaimer: The content of this educational video is covered by fair use. My explanations are transformative and add interpretation and analysis to the original work much as happens when I teach poetry in a university classroom. When I explain songs, I use only the lyrics or short clips of the original song or music video and thus have not hurt this song’s salability or provided a market substitute.

Please see me as your ally in my attempt to use a literary perspective to enable fans to better understand and enjoy your wonderful and interesting piece of music.
