Adam Sandler probably thought he cornered the very lucrative market of Jewish holiday songs (one-upping Dredel-Dredel) but in an effort to avoid trying to spell any Jewish words I'm just going to say that Elizabeth and the Catapult
are one-uping his tune with a twist: by focusing on what Jews do on Christmas. "Christmas With The Jews" includes movie going, talk of Chinese food, and even laughing at Christmas cards! Skating around the Jewey blues! Festive!
Elizabeth showed us a great time during her Guest Apartment visit
, so its no surprise she crafted a catchy melody for her Christmas song. She shows her musical prowess here by playing with familiar Christmas-y musical motifs, and the result is a charming little number about Fandango and "Cream Of Some Young Guy" (am I hearing this right?) We wish Jew a Merry Christmas (sorry). -joe puglisi
