Hanukkah started yesterday for many of our Jewish AMP listeners and while there are more than enough Christmas tunes sung by pop stars, there are very few Hanukkah songs that have a hip, modern, youthful twist.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Maccaabeat[/lastfm]s changed that by redoing [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taio Cruz[/lastfm]‘s chart-topping hit “Dynamite” and turning it into the tasteful, hilarious, educational, and celebratory “Candlelight.”
With lyrics like “I throw my latkes in the air sometimes/saying Ay-yo/spin the dreidl/just wanna celebrate for all eight nights/singing ay-yo/light the candle,” how can you not think this is amazing?
Well done, Maccaabeats!
