HORRORWITZ'S 8 NIGHTS OF HAPPENIN' HANUKKAH HITS! #8: "Tzena Tzena" by The Temples plus Sam Chalpin bonus (?) tune!

For our last night of Hanukkah we present to you another rockin' tune by The Temples, a cover of the Jewish classic "Tzena Tzena", a party song that has something to do with telling girls to go out and meet up with soldiers. (I kid you not!) The Temples cover brings along another Twist... um... twist... to the popular Jewish song.

And, as a bonus track, I bring to you Sam Chalpin and his brain-numbingly meshugga cover of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction".

While lyric-wise this is not technically a Jewish record per se, Chalpin's "Satisfaction" is another novelty track sung somewhat in the in the same vein as Gefilte Joe and The Fish (ie- an old Jewish guy destroys a classic).

I hope you've enjoyed listening to these past 8 Nights of Happennin' Hanukkah Hits as much as I've enjoyed posting them.
