Adam Sandler, "Chanukah Song"

"I wrote this song for all the nice little Jewish kids that don't get to hear Chanukah songs," Sandler said of this seasonal classic.

Sandler has recorded three versions of the song — but the best is the original from 1994, which contains the immortal line, "Bruce Springsteen's not Jewish, but my mother thinks he is."
