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 ...


  1. She's awesome, isn't she?! And opening the Olympics to boot! Love it!

  2. KD was fantabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed.

  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.


Sorry humans, but I have had to reintroduce the word verificatin thing again due to an inordinate amount of crappy spam.
