Hallelujah fu scritta e composta nel corso di un anno, e si dice che sia stata il
frutto di un processo tortuoso e frustrante per Cohen. Il cantautore stesso ha
detto di aver scritto originariamente pi di ottanta versi, e di averne scartato
successivamente, in fase di registrazione, la maggior parte.
La prima versione registrata in studio della canzone durava 4 minuti e 39, ma
la versione che fu poi diffusa raggiunge i 6:54. lo stesso Cohen che, nel testo stesso,
descrive gli accordi utilizzati: "the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift". The fourth,
la quarta, corrisponde al Fa (la tonalit di tutta la canzone Do maggiore); the fith, la quinta,
al Sol; the minor, la minore, al La minore e the major, la maggiore di nuovo al Fa.
La canzone contiene numerosi riferimenti biblici, a partire da Davide che suona l'arpa e
alla sua relazione con Betsabea, dopo che la aveva vista fare il bagno sul suo tetto. Il verso "she broke your
throne and she cut your hair", "ella ruppe il tuo trono e ti tagli i capelli", un chiaro riferimento a Sansone,
che perse la forza dopo che gli furono tagliati i capelli( Libro dei Giudici ). Jeff Buckley disse invece che la sua
interpretazione della canzone era un "inno all'orgasmo". Il testo comunque stato a volte modificato dai vari artisti c
he hanno interpretato la canzone, la maggior parte delle volte attingendo altre parole o versi contenute nelle diverse
versioni dell'Hallelujah cantate dallo stesso Cohen.
