The name of the song with the "Halleluiahs" in it is called "Halleluiah"!
It's the best song on the CD. Hope I helped.:)

I agree. I even tried to find out what era this song was written about. This might be more than you wanted to know but "Halleluiah" was performed by John Cale with a few of the stanzas cut. It was composed by Leonard Cohen. I believe the composer was referring to the siege on Vienna in 1683. If you know more, please e-mail me with details. Thanks!

I get the impression from the song that it's talking about scenes from the bible. "You saw her bathing on the roof" sounds like david and bathsheba and "She cut your hair" sounds like Sampson and Delila. I could be wrong, just some thoughts. Either way it's a great song. Has anyone noticed that the version on the soundtrack is different from the version in the movie? It's a different singer and everything.

Yes I believe that to as it so beautifully fits together. This song is one of the best songs I've ever heard. This song is the reason I like shrek.
