Just wondered if anyone else thought that the line 'Why'd you sing "Hallelujah"/If it means nothing to ya?" in Delicate might be a referral to the famous Jeff Buckley song of the same name? Damien is often compared to Jeff, after all...

Yes, it is. Damien sings Jeff's version who was singing John Cale's version who was covering Leonard Cohen's version.

And when Damien sings it the collective hair of everybody in the room stands up. [img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img]

They are comparing the feeling you get when you listen to them Rob. I like them both because the way i feel when i hear them. So i say they are comparable.
In your mind, what secrets would I find? What's inside your heart tears mine apart.
