This is that age old
Passover tale that's retold
This is what we listen to
While eatin' through those matzah pieces

My roommate just told me to watch this yesterday, thank you for the reminder! I saw Six13 several years ago in concert and really enjoyed it. I think I need to send this to my dad too because otherwise he will send it to me first.

This video has also brought up a serious seder concern to which I do not have an answer: what if the youngest child in your household is A BABY

This is magnificent.

This is also great because it reminds me of how my awesome family sings Go Down Moses at our Seders. I do not think this is traditional?

I'm not Jewish and don't get the references (mostly) but dropped in to say holy hell that's well done. Killer singing.

Also cool shot looking through the rear view cam.

Very good. Also, since I am an old, I was worried this was going to have something to do with Billy Joel. Really glad it didn't.

I would have bet money you couldn't fit the melody of Ma Nishtana into that song. Love how they got the order of the seder in there as well. Fun.

Capricorn: Next youngest goes (yep, even if it's said baby's parent)

Mchelly has the halachic answer.

But when it was just the four of us, my wife and I sang to our babies together.

Also, I am so sick to hell of that song and cannot convey Just. How. MUCH. I wanted to hate this. But wow, it was really well done and not as corny as I was expecting. So thanks for posting. :)

You were not alone in your fears.

zarq, I hear you, but it's been in my head so now I have a version with less annoying lyrics, at the very least! :)

Not sure there's a "the" halachic answer. In my husband's family, everybody says them except the oldest person there, in reverse age order. Sometimes that means 20 straight minutes of it. Ack.

OMG breakdancing! I like both of these, first one is a great history lesson, second one seems more of a nod to all the cool dancing that Bruno Mars and Co get up to.

Okay, this is great.

Capricorn, my family also sings go down Moses... with a banjo! Can't really get more nerdy than that. Gotta love it.

Mchelly - figured it was something like that, but that's less interesting to me than the idea of everyone awkwardly trying to pretend a baby is singing questions to them.

schmopera, can I come to your seder please?

These are ridiculous and great and I'm going to forward them to everybody so we all have that song in our heads.

I came across this poem the other day and really liked it: Maggid
