Neil Diamond recently released a Christmas album—his third Christmas album, in fact. But a closer look at A Cherry Cherry Christmas’s track list reveals that after 13 holiday standards (“White Christmas,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” etc.), Diamond closes the album with … “The Chanukah Song”. That’s right, folks: one of the great Jewish-American songwriters (and, as Nextbook Press’s A Fine Romance shows, that is quite the list) has adopted Adam Sandler’s classic early-‘90s recitation of “people who are Jewish—just like you and me.” Adopted it, that is, and turned it into something of an ‘80s power ballad. Put on your yarmulkes, and enjoy!
