What’s the Best Chanukah Song?

adam sandler hanukkah

It only took about 2000 years after the miracle of the long-lasting oil for someone to pick up an instrument and sing a good song about Chanukah (aka Hanukkah). That man’s name is Adam Richard Sandler.

Five years later, he wrote new lyrics and released Part II. Three years after that, for his cartoon film Eight Crazy Nights, he released Part III.

The most important part of these songs was outing people who are Jewish. If it weren’t for The Chanukah Song, how would we have ever known that Don Messick, the voice of Scooby Doo, is Jewish?

Read more about the history of Sandler’s song on its Wikipedia page, which teaches us that Sandler screwed up in Part I by claiming Rod Carew converted.
