Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Hits from the Past – Week 31

A Cappella, Hallelujah

Pentatonix won the third season of The Sing-Off, a singing competition of a capella groups. They met for the first time the day before auditions for the show. I love this performance of one of my favorite songs, written by Leonard Cohen about 1984. I do find it strange that the song has somehow become a religious anthem for many American christian singers and choirs. I wonder if they have ever listened to the words, which have very earthly and earthy context.

Inspire, music, nostalgia


What lovely voices. Judy Martin also choose the same song, sung by another reality TV singer. It does seem to be a very popular song when it comes to singing contests. I hear it a lot at Christmas time as well.
Thanks, Marie.
