It’s the Festival of Lights this weekend, and musical enlightenment is in short supply. The traditional tunes for the Jewish festival are (a) an 18th century German marching tune and (b) a selection of mumbled drones.
So me and my friend Haylz (that’s here somewhere in the pic below) put our heads together to bring you a selection of offbeat holiday arts & ents.
We differ on some tracks. A few of my faves failed to make the cut. For instance, I prefer the solo version of the Chanukah stand-up (Haylz has gay men doing chorus)
On the other hand, Haylz (check below) is big on contemporary comedy. Me, I can’t resist the Jewish mother’s lament (are those double entendres intended?):
This one has single entendres:
And no Chanukah is complete without the essential Handel anthem
But these are minor refinements. Click your way right here thru Haylz’s list.
