Jewish holiday music videos

Forget Adam Sandler. Over the past few years, there has been a proliferation of Jewish take-offs of popular songs. The Fountainheads have produced Purim and Pesach (Passover) covers. The Maccabeats had a good amount of exposure with their Hanukkah and put out a Purim, too. Of course, not all of these songs are covers.

It's nice to see all of these songs collected in one place.

I wonder if the Maccabeats would show up at my wedding? Hm...

Will they play "My Hat, It Has Three Corners?"

I've just been enjoying this schmedley from UK comedy group The Three Englishmen. No holiday songs, but it does cover a remarkable range, from prog rock to house to gangsta to gaga. Azigazig-oy!

Past few years? How about 1983, Gefilte Joe and the Fish cover of "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" (pardon odd video with lousy audio)

Let us not overlook the magic of the traditional Ocho Kandelikas as reimagined by the Hip Hop Hoodios. MTV EspaƱol introduced me to all the best things.
