Since you've all come to Ben's website I'm assuming you're cool, therefore I also assume that you like Jeff Buckley. Not sure how good my logic is there. Anyways, what your favorite tune of his?
I'll start: Hallelujah (sorry if that's an obivous/boring choice but hey)

anyone who says anything different to hallelujah is either deaf or just lying to be original. lets face it, nothing tops hallelujah. <P>buckley-written songs, its got to be either ''opened once'' or ''lover, you should've come over''. and the lyrics to both are beautiful.

I'm slightly biased because I've been indoctrinated by clarice to love Hallelujah. She does this by looping it on her stereo and making me listen to it for hours on end.<P>Still a choon though.

"Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah' is divine, until you hear the original by Leonard Cohen, and realise that he's just another sentimental 'pained' American, crying and wailing to make ends meat." Or maybe not. 'Morning Theft' is my favourite, from 'Sweetheart the Drunk'.

The above quote is from the penultimate copy of Melody Maker. Jeff struck it down.

Does anybody here know the music of Tim Buckley (father). I recommend 'Happy Sad' to all.

I got bored so i decided I'd look at some of the old posts for awhile. Yes I have I life, but I was just bored... alright I don't have a life then.
Jeff Buckley... Has to be one of the coolest guys ever. I liked Satisfied Mind the best. So sad... and creepy, considering how he died.

Well Ignorant, Jeff Buckley was a singer whose depression eventually killed him. He drowned himself in some river while singing. His dad was really famous too but i forget his name. Man I'm tired, I'm going to bed...

Slappy, Matthew, you'd both do well to listen to some of his songs. They're really good, and in my opinion boardering on genious. Albeit rather... down.
May I suggest you listen to Satisfied Mind and/or All tomorrows' Parties. To me the fact that he killed himself only makes his music all the more profound.

Will do, may I ask when all of this happened? When he killed himself and when he did his music?

I downloaded "Hallelujah" and "Satisfied Mind" from Kazaa. To be honest, I couldn't even finish listening to "Hallelujah". Just not my cup of tea I suppose. "Satisfied Mind", I think has the ability to grow on you if you give it the chance. I liked the lyrics. But, I need more than just lyrics!! I want a catchy melody, which blues style songs sometimes don't have. It just got too monotonous for me. I can understand how all of you really love his music, I just seem to have different tastes. I'll try listening to "Satisfied Mind" a couple more times to see if I change my mind. Interesting story though. Drowned himself while singing? That's a helluva way to go.

Hmm, a good question. I'm not entirely sure, but I think he died in 1997, or some time in that area. His music must have been late 80's to mid 90's.

His dad was called Tim Buckley and he wrote Hello and Goodbye amoungst other albums and he was almost considered to be a genius by some.

Leonard Cohens version may be more famous but Jeff Buckleys version is the definitive one by an absolute mile
Its in the same league as Stairway To Heaven / Bridge Over Troubled Water / Something / Walk On The Wild Side
