Passover Music Parodies

Filed under: Jewishness, Judaism — Tags: , , — edge of the sandbox @ 9:18 am

Since the Passover begins at sundown today, let me present for your viewing pleasure two Passover musical parodies.  First, a really cool take on Bohemian Rhapsody featuring some really cool puppets:

Second, I’m Going to a Seder (ritual Passover meal) by The Shlomones:

For those of you not on to the conspiracy, in this video, The Shlomones sing Dayenu (“That should be enough”), a song performed at the Seder.  Hillel is a chain of Jewish student unions.  The Orthodox restrict electricity use during the holiday, which explains the message about the recording not being made on Passover at the end of the video.

The Ramones fans are all grey-haired and middle aged now?  I remember when hippies were middle age, and young women wore stripy thigh highs.  These days former young women sweep the rug a gazillion times a day because they made the mistake of letting their kids open the matzoh box before the start of Passover.

Anywho, next year in Jerusalem!

CORRECTIONS: 1. They also sing “Dayenu” in the first video.

2. “Hillel” sign is probably a reference to Hillel sandwich (matzos and greens) eaten as a part of the Passover meal, not Hillel Student Union because the video was filmed at a private residence and Seder participants are dressed in costume.
