As a follow up to The Maccabeats, here is Matisyahu with a pop ditty just in time for the holidays.
I preferred Matisyahu’s harder reggae works (See our Best of list for 2005), but this ain’t bad.
Music starts at 1:25
Matisyahu says, “There are so many Christmas songs out there. I wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of. We’ve got Adam Sandler’s song, which is hilarious, but I wanted to try to get across some of the depth and spirituality inherent in the holiday in a fun, celebratory song. My boy Kojak was in town so at the last minute we went into the studio in the spirit of miracles and underdogs and this is what we came up with. Happy Hannukah!”
