At the latke party tonight, I was wondering why they were playing “Dynamite,” by Taio Cruz, a popular song with a catchy tune that I hear on the radio now and then.
And then I listened closer to the lyrics and realized that it was not exactly the same song.
Turns out it was a song called “Candlelight,” by a group called The Maccabeats—an a cappella group from Yeshiva University. It's a Hanukkah song to the tune of “Dynamite.”
The video has gone viral, with over a million views so far, so I imagine a bunch of you have seen it already, but since I had never heard of it until tonight, figured it was worth passing along.
