For some reason the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah has become associated with Christmas – even though that is not where it fits in the story.  In 1979 I saw this live.  I was watching SNL as a teenager, and when this musical guest announced they were going to sing the Hallelujah Chorus I figured it would be a parody.  It was not… so Merry Christmas everybody.  [And before ya mock the way they were dressed, remeber it was 1979 after all]   – This version is not on YouTube, so you’ll have to follow this link.
