Jeff Buckley (1966 - 1997)
His song “Hallelujah” was one of his most controversial and ironic songs. The message is quite unclear which gave it a more interesting taste to it. The song tells a vague story similar to the paintings you’ll see in van Gogh Museum Amsterdam. He drowned in Wolf River Harbor in 1997. Fan up to this day argue about the meaning of his songs. It’s too bad that we have never asked him what the meaning of the song really holds.
