Songs in the Key of Hanukkah

Songs in the Key of Hannukah by Erran Baron Cohen is one of my favorite holiday albums. Baron Cohen, brother of Sacha, blends rap, reggae, rock, klezmer, electronica and more into a beautiful collection of songs about judaism's struggle against the Seleucid empire.

    I believe he also wrote the version of the Kazakhstani National Anthem used in “Borat.”

    I’m definitely going to have to get this album since I–and the world–desperately need more Hanukkah songs! And because I can’t always turn to The LeeVees for my 8-day fix. If you don’t know the album “Hanukkah Rocks,” let me enlighten you to one of the great pop albums of all time (I’m not kidding about this): http://www.theleevees.com.
