Shivers down my spine


There's a little old sporting event kicking off in Vancouver this weekend - I don't know if you've heard about it? Despite gold medals and amazing personal endeavours - I'm sorry, but the highlight of the whole thing will be kd lang's version of "Halleluja" at the opening ceremony last night.

It's a long time since I've been made to sit upright and lean forward towards a tv screen. Bloody amazing.

I can't find a (good) Olympic version on YouTube yet, but give it 24 hours and it will be there.

In the meantime, here is her version from 2005 - and it's almost as good anyway.

Enjoy ...

  3. Thanks for that, not a fan of Olympic Opening's so would have missed this. Brings condensation to the eyes everytime I hear it. KD has never got the world recognition she deserves. Didn't realise she was an Alberta lass.
