The LeeVees

With the Christmas season about to begin - or, considering the number of decorations on the walls and carols being played at department stores right now, already underway - I'm sure you're thinking about one thing and one thing only: what am I going to buy people for Hannukah?


Might I suggest Hannukah Rocks by The LeeVees? It just may be the finest Hannukah album in the history of recorded music.

Admittedly, that's not saying much. I don't know about you but I've never made a dreidel out of clay, so that song doesn't have a lot of relevance to my personal experience of the festival of lights. But I do often wonder, How Do You Spell Channukkahh?"

You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy the album - but, to reference an old SNL commercial parody, it couldn't hurt - as the songs are catchy, clever and well produced. If you do listen to the album over at MySpace, be sure to check out one of my favorites, Goyim Friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!
