Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings Drop Animated Lyric Video For The Funkiest Hanukkah Song Ever
A few months back, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings got the holiday season started with a bang, releasing their It’s A Holiday Soul Party to raving reviews and accolades. Today the album reaches peak timeliness with an animated lyric video for what may be the single funkiest Hannukah song that ever was, their own, “8 Days (Of Hanukkah.)”
At a time when a funk-loving observer of the holiday has only “The Latke Song,” “Pass The Candle” and Matisyahu to look towards for seasonal musical merriments, we thank the lovely Miss Jones and her kings for finally providing us with a James Brown-worthy holiday anthem. There may be eight days to it, but it’ll only take three minutes and some change to get into the dreidel-spinning mood. Peep the animated lyric video for Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings’ “8 Days (Of Hanukkah)” and grab a copy of their holiday record It’s A Holiday Soul Party on iTunes today for the perfect musical accompaniment to your sweater-clad festivities.
