Music Video Mondays: Post Chanukah Edition

Welcome to another installment of Music Video Mondays. This is the post Chanukah Edition (because I was to lazy/busy to actually post it last Monday, during Chanukah).

Ever since Adam Sandler created the classic "Chanukah" song, people have been eager to try create other hits based on this holiday. And why not? We have enough Christmas songs to last lifetimes over. And while Sandler's hit song may never be replaced, here a couple of songs created in the spirit of the Jewish holiday.

Fist up, we have a band by the name of The Maccabeats, with their hit song "Candlelight", which is a parody of the song "Dynamite" by Tiao Cruz. The Maccabeats are a Jewish acapella group, from Yeshiva University, who formed in 2007. The song was just released, and has become a viral hit on the internet. It's a fun and catchy song, which will totally get in your head and stay there for a good, long while!

Next up is another clever song entitled "Chanukah Musical Remix 2010" by six13 & NCSY. This song is a parody of not one, but three hit songs: "Baby" by Justin Beiber, "Heartless" by Kanye West & "I Like It" by Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull. I don't have any info on six13, the group that did the music, but NCSY is a Jewish youth organization dedicated to inspiring the young Jewish people out there.

As a treat, here is the original song that started the Chanukah song craze, "The Chanukah Song" by Adam Sandler.
