incidental music spot of the day

Jeff Buckley's Grace, the title track from his only "proper" studio album before he carelessly got himself drowned in the Mississippi in 1997, on Nicholas Crane's entertaining Great British Journeys series on BBC2. Fine album though it is, it's the astonishing cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah that seals the album's legendary status - well, that and him being dead, anyway. If you haven't heard it, sort it out, pronto.
