Thanks to Bill O’Donnell for the tip…

Yes. Enough with the ukuleles already! Unless you can top Jeff Buckley’s version (and you can’t) just leave well enough alone.
We’ll have to disagree on this one. John Cale’s version puts even Buckley’s to bed. And while I too have had enough the Jake hype, don’t dis the uke. It’s a lovely, lovely thing.
All this said, please, Dear God, leave “Hallelujah” alone. You really can’t add anything to it at this point.
