CBS (ended 2010)
I read the message about the Theme song being Nara by E.S. Posthumus but I am not sure if that is what I am looking for. I heard a song at the end of one episode that had words something about "a missing note" and a rather sad "hallaluah". Is that the same song and if not does anyone know the name of the song. I did see something in the credits related to music about a Michael A. Levine but can't find music by him anywhere. HELP PLEASE! I love the song. Thanks, email@example.com
Thank you so much! You made my evening. Now I have to see if it is something I can purchase. (?) This is one of my favorite shows and that song has been driving me crazy for awhile now.
|You can get it on iTunes, BUT it's not exactly the same version as the TV theme. Doesn't start with the same cry but does have the main melody a bit further in. |

Ausiello: That would be ms. kd lang.
|You are probably thinking about the song Hallelujah, performed by John Cale in the episode 3-20: Death Penalty: Final Appeal. It's been one of the most popular songs in many TV shows within the last two or three years, the most often-heard covers being performed by Jeff Buckley or Rufus Wainwright. But there are numerous other versions. This is *not* the theme song because there are no illegible lyrics in the theme song.|
|See the notes for the first episode: "The Cold Case opening theme song is Nara by E.S. Posthumus."|
"Hallelujah" was written by Leonard Cohen. It's been covered by lots of people, most of whom snip some lyrics out or choose some from the original and some from his live version recorded at Austin City Limits.
John Cale covered "Hallelujah" on the wonderful Leonard Cohen tribute album "I'm Your Fan" and it's the version that's in Shrek.
Then Rufus Wainwright covered it, and it's his version that's on the Shrek soundtrack album. Something about Cale's rights not being free for the album.
Jeff Buckley covered it, and I think it's one of the most beautiful moments in the history of music.
As Talvix mentioned, k.d. lang also covered it. And, according to Wikipedia, so have a few others:
"Among the other musicians who have recorded covers of this song released on CD are: Italian singer Elisa from her album "Lotus", Maxwell Murder of Saturday's Car Ride Home, Rea Garvey of Reamonn, Alex Lloyd, Sephira, Adam Nikkel, Keren Ann, Willie Nelson, Beefy, Bono, Bon Jovi, Blake, Bret Darby, Clare Bowditch, Fred Eaglesmith, Steve Acho, Allison Crowe, Patricia O'Callaghan, Jackie Greene, Julie Felix, Damien Leith, Anthony Michael Hall , Bettie Serveert, Kenny Zhao, John Owen-Jones, Custard, k d lang, Kevin Max, Gord Downie, Simple Plan, Gov't Mule, Steffen Brandt/Tina Dickow (in Danish translation), K's Choice, Enrique Morente (flamenco version, translated to Spanish), Street to Nowhere, Wayne Whittaker, the Prayerbabies, Kevin Christy, Kathryn Williams, Lucky Jim, Over the Rhine, Pat Terlizzi, Myrra Malmberg, Susanna and the Magical Orchestra, Michael Wolff, The Brown Derbies, Imogen Heap, Popa Chubby, Jimm Zombie, Joe Wilson, Kristian Meurman (in Finnish), Hilary Scott, The Choir of Hard Knocks and Kate Voegele.
