There’s nothing on her tongue but Hallelujah. Sorry Leonard Cohen, but the glory is not for you this time because It’s Raining Men, Hallelujah. Ditch the King David for the speedos, raincoats, tube socks, and dress shows. Amen.
Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah is probably one of my favorite songs of all time; the way he effortlessly weaves the sacred and the profane is just brilliant. But let’s face it, the way the song makes me think about my own life can be kind of inconvenient at times. However, the sheer frivolity of this hallelujah-centric song only brings back happy memories of all the night I spent in gay clubs with my still-closeted waiter friends from Denny’s.
The Sweat & Glitter Golder Treaddie for “Most FESTIVE Use of Hallelujah in a FESTIVE Song” goes to of course, the Weather Girls “It’s Raining Men”.
