I Can't Believe It's Chanukah Again: A New Soon-To-Be Classic Song

We wish all of our readers a Happy Thanksgiving, whether you're sitting down to a dinner of turkey, turducken, or tofurky.  

If Thanksgiving is here today, can Chanukah be far behind?  Actually, this year, it's only six days away!

Each year we look forward to celebrating Chanukah, but we've about had our fill of listening to I Have a Little Dreidel and Chanukah, Oh Chanukah, and yes, even Adam Sandler's The Hanukkah SongWe've been yearning for some new, meaningful, modern music and lyrics to sustain us through the eight day festival.

While searching the internet, we stumbled upon a song that we think has the potential to rise to classic status and to be replayed each year at this time.  It's called I Can't Believe It's Chanukah Again, by Wayne Steele.

Wayne has been singing since the age of four, entertaining at community engagements and at family gatherings. By the time he was in high school he was singing in several theatrical performances, most of which were musicals. 

In college Wayne was lead singer of the band "Sonics".  Soon Wayne and his band began booking gigs all over New York State and eventually Long Island hot spots. Wayne and the members of Sonics went their own way and Wayne formed the group AZIZ. Again, Wayne found himself rocking college towns around New York State. Their first album sold thousands on in the late 90's and was named the "Best in Unsigned Rock-n-Roll" by WBAB. AZIZ got their music played on the radio and positive feedback was given by "The Voice" and "Island Ear." 

In 2005, Wayne put out a solo project called It's All About Chanukah.  The 4 track CD has the self titled song that tells the story of Chanukah in a catchy, fun, hooky style that is sure to get you to sing along.  The vocal performances are strong and the riffs will keep your head bobbing and toes tapping.  And now he's back with I Can't Believe It's Chanukah Again -- a song that's even more catchy and likely to stay in your head for awhile.  Give it a listen...and you will be hooked.  Enjoy!
