HALLELUJAH
Category:  Cover Songs
Description:  The song is about love which has soured and gone stale. Cohen used a lot of religious imagery, including references to some of the more notorious women in the bible. Here's some lyrical analysis: "You saw her bathing on the roof, her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you" - Bathsheba, who tempted the king to kill her husband so he could have her. "She tied you to her kitchen chair, she broke your throne and she cut your hair" - Delilah, who cut off Sampson's locks that held his superhuman strength. "But remember when I moved in you and the holy dove was moving too" - This could be a reference to the divine conception and Mary. The lines referring to the immaculate conception can also be interpreted as having a sexual connotation: "And every breath we drew was hallelujah." Cohen: "Hallelujah is a Hebrew word which means 'Glory to the Lord.' The song explains that many kinds of Hallelujahs do exist. I say: All the perfect and broken Hallelujahs have an equal value. It's a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion." (thanks, Roderick - Qingdao, China) Regarding the line, "The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift," to which the chords played are: F - G - Am - F: It is clever the way that not only the chords line up in the lyrics and in the music, but also because the connotations themselves of "major" and "minor" add to the meaning of the song. The "fourth" is a major chord based on the fourth of the key Buckley is playing in. Likewise the fifth is the major chord based on the fifth tone of the key. The "Minor Fall" corresponds to Buckley playing a minor chord based on the sixth of the key. "Major Lift" corresponds to playing the major chord on the fourth again. (thanks, Gol - Gainesville, FL) The Bible makes reference to King David communing with the Lord and learning that certain types of music were more pleasing. The chords mentioned in the lyrics (that "David played and it pleased the lord) are often used in hymns. (thanks, Mike - Perth, Australia)

AND I AM TELLING YOU
Category:  Cover Songs
Description:  This torch song is the signature tune for the 1981 Broadway musical, Dreamgirls, in which Effie White, a singer with the girl group The Dreams, proclaims to her manager, Curtis Taylor Jr., that she loves him. Jennifer Holliday, who played Effie in the original 1981 Broadway production, recorded the original and definitive version of this song. Released as a single, it peaked at #22 in the US and #32 in the UK. Jennifer Hudson played Effie in the 2006 film version of Dreamgirls, winning an Oscar for her role and her version peaked at #60 in the Hot 100. The song hovered in the lower reaches of the UK singles chart three years later after a succession of performances on UK reality shows before peaking at the same chart position as Holliday's version. A dance version by Donna Giles reached #29 in the UK in February 1996.

Description:  THIS SONG IS MEANT TO INSPRE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW THER DREAMS AND BREAK FREE FROM CO-DEPENDANCY ! This was written for the movie Dreamgirls, where Beyoncé stars as Deena Jones, a character based on Diana Ross. Jones feels trapped in the film and unable to find her voice, until she breaks out with this song where she asserts herself. (thanks, Donovan Berry - El Dorado, AR) During its second week at #1 on the Billboard 200 in January 2007, The Dreamgirls soundtrack sold 60,000 copies, the lowest sales figure for a chart-topping album. In December 2008 this song returned to the UK chart and indeed entered the Top 10 for the first time, after a performance by in a duet with Alexandra Burke on the X-FactorTV show.

MARISSA SINGS THE POWER OF LOVE
Category:  Cover Songs
Description:  This was the first ever million seller by a female soloist in Britain and the biggest selling single in UK in 1985. It held the record for the largest-selling single ever by a woman until Whitney Houston's 1992 smash "I Will Always Love You." At the time it held the record for the longest ever climb to no 1 in UK- 16 weeks. Rush wrote this song along with Gunther Mende, Candy DeRouge and Mary Susan Applegate. The producer and songwriter David Foster, who helped her on her road to stardom, arranged the piece. The song was recorded in Germany, where Jennifer had relocated. (thanks, Sara - Silver Spring, MD) In the US Rush's version reached #57 but it was later a hit for Laura Branigan (#26 in 1987) and Celine Dion (#1 in 1994 and also #4 in the UK). A rival version by Australian duo Air Supply released the same time failed to trouble the charts in either territory. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson chose this for their first dance at their 1986 wedding. Many less famous couples did as well. Huey Lewis & The News and Frankie Goes To Hollywood also had Top-10 UK hits in 1985 with different songs called "The Power Of Love." New Yorker Jennifer Rush (real name Heidi Stern) is the daughter of opera singer Maurice Stern. This was her first hit in the UK. Her only other UK top 20 hit was her follow up "Ring Of Ice," which reached #14. In 1987 she made the US top 40 with a duet with Elton John entitled "Flames Of Paradise." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
