Top 5 Songs With Hallelujah in the Lyrics [VIDEO]
My favorite song so far this year is "My Church" from Maren Morris. In the chorus of the song she sings, "Can I get a hallelujah. Can I get an amen?" It's very catchy. I find myself singing it all the time. It got me to thinking that there are a few other great songs with the word, "Hallelujah" in them. I picked my top 5. I stayed away from religious songs, because they were too obvious.
5. My Hallelujah Song - Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough released "My Hallelujah Song" in September of 2008. It wasn't a huge hit. It barely missed the top 40 on the Country Singles Chart. However, I liked it and the video was quite successful as one of the top 50 videos of the year on GAC. I like Julianne as a singer and a dancer and I think her song is one of the top Hallelujah songs ever.
4. Uptown Funk - Cam
"Uptown Funk" was a huge hit recorded by Mark Ronson, with vocals by Bruno Mars. It spent 14 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was even nominated for a couple Grammy Awards. I have heard a number of people do covers of the song, including The Band Perry, but I think my favorite is version done by Cam. She did it when she was at the Boot Grill and brought down the house.
3. Turn of the Century - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
I went back a ways for this one. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recorded the legendary album, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two" in 1989. I had the opportunity to see them and a few of their friends perform the album live at Red Rocks. The song that caught my attention was "Turn of the Century". My favorite part of the song is when they sing "Hallelujah" in the chorus.
2. My church - Maren Morris
"My Church" is the debut single for Maren Morris. She even co-wrote the song. It has just gone top ten on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. It's my favorite song right now.
1. Hallelujah - Kurt Nilsen, Espen Lind, Askil Holm og, Alejandro Fuentes
Canadian Leonard Cohen wrote the song "Hallelujah" in 1984. Even though the song never enjoyed great chart success, it has been recorded over 300 times since then. In my opinion, the video above is the best version I have ever seen, although Jeff Buckley's cover is the most successful.
