Dear Pentatonix…

I love you, folks. Really I do. I have been listening to you a lot over the past month — your “O Come, All Ye Faithful” is my favorite Christmas song. It is joyous, it is catchy, and the video makes me happy. But…

I don’t care how beautiful (and it is) or haunting (and it is)…. Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is NOT a Christmas song. What possessed you to put it on your Christmas album? Didn’t you listen to the lyrics?

Neither is “Let it Go” a Christmas song, but at least that one is about ice and snow. (You are not the only group that does something like this — Home Free included “Colder Weather” on their Christmas album, and that is not about Christmas, either.)

Still love you people, though, and your version of “Hallelujah” joins Rufous Wainwright, Tori Kelly, and four other artists on my iTunes.
