Video: Jeff Buckley "Hallelujah (NPA Live '95)"

The late Jeff Buckley performs a live cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Beautiful. Makes me weep.

I have history with Jeff's cover; evokes people I care of dying. As Buckley performs live, he speaks of France testing nuclear bombs. Seems the song evokes the same mood in the listener as in the artist. Where does the song take you?
