It’s Hanukkah! Let’s celebrate with a few non-terrible Hanukkah songs. The first is “Puppy for Hanukkah” by the incomparable Daveed Diggs, best known for “Hamilton.” Neither Lucy nor Linus are Hanukkah puppies, but they get Hanukkah gifts each year. Linus doesn’t like to share toys, and Lucy has a flazéda attitude when Linus steals hers.
Next, here’s “Goyim Friends” by the LeeVees. Let the goyim have their trees and whatnot. I’m happy with latkes and sufganiyot.
A few years ago, SNL gave us this wonderful musical Hanukkah present. It’s always a chai-light of any Hanukkah playlist.
Here’s an awesome playlist from Apple Music. My two favorites are “Give You Everything” by Buzzy Lee and “Eight Nights a Week” by Loudon Wainwright III. It’s the playlist the Complimentary Spouse and I are listening to now as we watch the candles burn down.
As part of the Gay Agenda™, I’m required to include this clip of Sandra Bernhard singing the prayer for lighting the Hanukkah candles to RuPaul.
Chag sameach! Now go spin some dreidels and eat some latkes!
