Sharon Jones Has Your New Hanukkah Anthem and a Delightful Video to Go Along With It

By

Well, this is sure a lot more fun than getting socks on the first day of Hanukkah again (though far less practical). Off Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings' recently released album, It’s a Holiday Soul Party, “8 Days (of Hanukkah)” and its new video are a freaking blast. It has some heavy Schoolhouse Rock (Jew-lhouse Rock) vibes. You know there's dancing dreidels! Look, Adam Sandler's song will always be seminal, as long as Jewish kids try to seem cool by telling people that Rod Carew and Jonas Salk were actually Jewish (poor kid, you probably should've picked Sammy Davis Jr. and a Gyllenhaal), but with this song, Jones might've started a new Hanukkah tradition. Traditiooooooooon! Tradition.
