Freaky...

... is when my itunes on shuffle plays Rufus Wainwright's Memphis Skyline followed by Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah.

For those that don't know, Rufus wrote MS about Jeff's death, and one of the lines goes

Then came 'Hallelujah' sounding like mad Ophelia.

For those that don't care, I'm sorry. As you were.

It's just that... music machines on 'random' settings often toss things together that make sense, don't they? hmmm.

Yay, random. Actually, it's a conspiracy and your iPod knows more about you and your musical tastes than you do. (or something)

And, Rufus Wainright did a not-half-bad version of Hallelujah, too.

Random is usually very unrandom I find.
Yeah, the covers ain't bad but give me Leonard Cohen any day.

Amiga, have been enraptured for a while but this brings me back...

listening to Jeff Buckley sing a duet in the Phoenix with a friend of mine late one night, sometime in the early '90s.

Now that I live in NY I pine for days singing at gigs with friends.
