Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ in Yiddish, by klezmer musician Daniel Kahn

can I just say, I love this version so much not just because it’s beautiful in its own right (it is), but because it’s such a good translation? it’s by no means an exact translation, but a lot of times when I see translated music, people strive to be as close to exact as possible, and what’s so great is that Daniel Kahn doesn’t do that. he doesn’t have to–he’s coming from the same background as Leonard Cohen, he understands all of the religious allusions as well as the uniquely Jewish viewpoint behind them. so he allows himself to stray from the literal words, and having that freedom actually makes his translation (and re-translation) more authentic because it has the same nuance and underlying meaning as the original.

which I think is especially poignant for Hallelujah, because a lot of Christian artists have covered this song and totally changed or eliminated the most explicitly Jewish verse–the one that references “the name”–in favor of one that describes the explicitly Christian “holy dove/ghost/spirit.” which sucks because and it’s a really powerful verse, and I think putting it back into its original context, and then translating it into and then back from Yiddish makes it even more powerful.

Always relog crying out hallelujah as if it were l’chaim.

WOLVERINE: 17 Years and Then Some

While I generally think using “Hurt” misses the point of Logan and not a good song for divining an arc for this character. Logan isn’t about wollowing in self pity over seeing loved ones gone, it’s about remembering why you lived with them in the first place. Still, this is a solid retrospective and reminds me why I always love a good montage, they build an immediate context across years, genre, and films. It also makes X3 and Origins Wolverine  appear somewhat passable and important … despite them being erased from continuity (as much as one that can be derived from the X-Franchise).
