Songs of Chanukah and other Jewish celebrations - ht tp://www.rhino.com/Features/liners/75349lin.html Sung, arranged and played by Jay Levy. In her introduction to the song in her book, Memories of Sarajevo, the Composer, Flory Jagoda, writes; "Hanukkah...what exciting memories. Because on each of the eight nights "matchmaking parties" were held; and while the young sang and danced, their parents and grandparents enjoyed planning their children's weddings. Little almond and honey cakes were eaten to assure luck and happiness -- and a good match. The next year at the wedding, the bride was customarily asked "at which Hanukkah party did you meet?""

The Hanukkah Song (Adam Sandler) Outkast Hey ya English Intro: This is a song, that uh, theres alot of Xmas songs out there, but not too many about Hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who dont get to hear any Hanukkah songs--here we go... Put on your yarmulke,here comes Hanukkah It's so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah, Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights. When you feel like the only kid in town without a Xmas tree, Here's a list of people who are Jewish, just like you and me: David Lee Roth lights the menorrah, So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli, Bowzer from Sha-na-na, and Arthur Fonzer relli. Paul Newman's half Jewish; Goldie Hawn's half too, Put them together--what a fine lookin' Jew! [Esus] You don't need Deck the Halls or Jingle Bell Rock 'Cause you can spin the dreidl with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock-- both Jewish! [Esus] Put on your yarmulke, it's time for Hanukkah, The owner of the Seattle Super sonic-ahs celebrates Hanukkah. O.J. Simpson-- not a Jew! But guess who is...Hall of Famer--Rod Carew--(he converted!) We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby, Harrison Ford's a quarter Jewish-- not too shabby! Some people think that Ebeneezer Scrooge is, Well, he's not, but guess who is: All three stooges. [Esus] So many Jews are in show biz-- Tom Cruise isn't, [tacit] but I heard his agent is. [Esus] Tell your friend Veronica, it's time you celebrate Hanukkah I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely Hanukkah. So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, but dont smoke your mara juanic-ah, If you really, really wanna-kah, Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah!
