IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC, MAN
[Editor's note: Despite the popularity of "Seventy-Six Trombones," it is not all about "The Music Man."]
Jewish music's all the rage these days. In addition to the swelling debate over whether Adam Sandler's Chanukah song is good or bad for the Jews, we've got rap battles between Jews and Palestinians in Israel, the launch of Bnai Brith digital radio, and new Chanukah music from The Barenaked Ladies, among others.
Of course, I wouldn't be a blog if I didn't mention that "Hey Ya" song parody. (Now that I've successfully excised the catchiness of the original from my head, here comes the spoof to reinfect my cerebral cortex.)*
Jeez. You'd think we controlled the media or something.**
*Note to the more scientific members of my audience: I do not for a fact know which part of the brain stores annoying pop music hooks. But I do know that "cerebral cortex" sounds funny.
**Despite this anti-Semitic rumor that the Jews run the media, I still don't have my own TV show. So, there you go. Anti-Semitic rumor disproved.
