Happy Chanukah! Love, Neil Diamond

Last month Neil Diamond released a pretty lame covers album. What made it all the worse was that last year, however briefly, his interpretive abilities shone. Sure, the horribly-titled A Cherry Cherry Christmas album featured “White Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” and twelve other treacley clichés. No surprises there. All was forgiven upon hearing the last track, though – a hilariously sincere cover of Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song.”

So to celebrate Chanukah, we revisit that instant-classic video. An animated Diamond sings about those “eight crazy nights” clad in a sparkly leisure suit, complete with ample chest hair. So the next time you’re rolling your eyes during “Sweet Caroline” on karaoke night, just get out your harmonic-ah, drink your gin and tonic-ah, and remember Neil Diamond’s “Chanukah.”

Happy Chanukah all!
