One For Each Night: A Guide To Hanukkah A Capella Videos
With nearly a decade’s worth of a capella Hanukkah music videos, where do you even begin? Here are a few of the best to get you started — one (or two) for each night.
On the first night, watch “Candlelight” (2010), the Maccabeats’ parody of Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” that started it all.
On the second night, watch“Shake It Off” (2014), Six13’s take on Taylor Swift’s hit song that became this group’s first big viral video.
On the third night, watch the Maccabeats in the kitchen with “Latke Recipe” (2015), a parody of “Shut Up And Dance” originally performed by Walk the Moon.
On the sixth night, take a few minutes to watch “Rise Up” (2017), the Y-Studs’ adaptation of Andra Day’s song as an anthem against anti-Semitism.
On the seventh night, watch “Bohemian Hanukkah” (2018), a holiday rendition of Queen’s tour de force.
