The Maccabeats’ 2021 Chanukah video. What do you think?
A parody of “Levitating.”

Lyrics

If you wanna celebrate with us, we got a holiday
We call the Festival of Lights
Menorahs on the table with half a dozen dreidels
And the music helps you feel alright
Light ‘em from the left add ‘em from the right
Candles in a perfect line
If you’re feeling like you need a little bit of levity
You found us at the perfect time

Hanissim la’avoteinu
Ha-nifla’ot sh’b’doreinu
The temple, rededicated
Nes Gadol Haya!

What we do, eight nights, windows, shine bright
With that view in sight, iridescently
Illuminating

Judas Maccabeus and his army won’t defeat us
Antiochus was an evil guy
Banning our religion and our family tradition
Was impossible to justify
Judah won the fight, miracle of light
Shining to this very day
We’ll carry on forever in this holiday together
And we’ll never let it fade away

The whole year anticipating
Sufganiyot, potato grating
2000 years rededicating
Nes Gadol Haya

What we do, eight nights, windows, shine bright
With that view in sight, iridescently
Illuminating

Add another candle every night
Got a Chanukiah glowin’ bright
Every generation, won the fight
Nes Gadol Haya

What we do, eight nights, windows, shine bright
With that view in sight, iridescently
Illuminating
