Top ten songs for Passover

See also

There are many traditional songs sung during and after a Passover seder including ‘Ma Nishtanah,’ ‘Adir Hu,’ and the ever popular ‘Dayenu.’ Fifteen verses long, you could say ‘Dayenu’ is the ‘Stairway To Heaven’ of Hebrew music, and the epic ‘Stairway’ only has eight verses.

However, this is not a traditional list but rather a soundtrack of rock and reggae songs that together tell the story of Passover. This is strictly for fun, so you shouldn’t take it too seriously.

This list primarily focuses on the ten plagues and Moses' demands for freedom as he led the exodus out of Egypt. Of course, if it's been a while since you watched Charlton Heston parting the waters in the television movie The Ten Commandments here's a site that can bring you up to speed so that the list will make more sense.

To listen to this playlist, click the ‘click to play’ button on the left side of the page, then click on the player to hear all of these songs in their entirety.
