Hallelujah - Karsh Kale at Coke Studio @ MTV
Posted On 11th August, 2012 @ 09:00 am by MTV EDITOR

Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

A reworking of Leonard Cohen’s classic song by the same name, Karsh’s version is about the pain and glory of love. For this version, he enlists guitarist Warren Mendonsa’s songwriting skills and incorporates the instrumental portion of Warren’s ‘Ode to a Sunny Day’ which seemed to thematically match the mood of ‘Halleluiah’.

 

Shilpa Rao comes in on the Hindusthani bits with echoes of ‘Jhoola’, a song she grew up on. The beautiful song is marked by an epic guitar solo by Warren.

 

Read the lyrics here:

 

I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you don't really care for music, do you?

It goes like this

The fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing Hallelujah


 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah !

 

 

jhoola kinne daara re amariya

jhoola kinne daara re amariya


 

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah !

 


jhoola kinne daara re amariya

jhoola kinne daara re amariya

jhoole mora saiyan lun main balaiya

jhoole mora saiyan lun main balaiya..


 

dar mohe laage jiya mora larje

dar mohe laage jiya mora larje

haule haule jhoolna jhoolave more saiyan.. re amaraiya

 

 

This is the world that I live in

These are the hands that I've been given

These are the sounds of forgiving

This is the place that I've been sitting

This is the rain I'm standing under

All the lightning and the thunder

These are the lives that are blown assunder

but I remain in wonder

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


 

Jhoola, jhoola

Jhoola, jhoola

 


This is the world that I live in

These are the hands that I've been given

These are the sounds of forgiving

This is the place that I've been sitting

This is the rain I'm standing under

All the lightning and the thunder!
