From the "Super Simple Songs" collection, this Chanukah candle-counting song is one that the littlest children love to act out. "Here stands one little candle... hear it shout out, 'Don't blow me out 'cause I'm a Chanukah candle.'" It reminds the children that, unlike birthday candles, Chanukah candles are allowed to melt down. You can hear it on the Children's Music Videos page in the Children's Hanukkah Songs video. For older children, try "Counting Candles" from "Gan Shirim."
Dr. King's Dream uses the familiar "Avadim Hayinu" melody by Shlomo Postolsky ("We were slaves in Egypt, but now we're free") but has its own lyrics, which were inspired by Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" 1963 speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. In each of its three verses, "I have a dream" is repeated, as is "We share the dream." This all-English song uses a melody meaningful to Jews and lyrics meaningful to all. Sheet music download includes free download of song sheet and some information about Martin Luther King, Jr.
