My DJ sent us 2 version of Hava Nagila for our Hora… I really disliked both of them. Does anyone know of anywhere to download a good mp3 version, or do you know the name/artists of a good version? There are a bunch on itunes but they all seem to be really short, and I think most horas tend to last more than 2 or 3 minutes… yes?

Anyone have any ideas? I’m listening to some more online now and they’re all brutal!

@hotchocolate: Haha let me know when you find one. They are all pretty terrible.

hahaha I have yet to hear one that wasn’t terrible. I’m currently trying to find a ketubah design I don’t hate and thinking “why do these all look like no one bothered to update them for the modern day taste?”…hadn’t even thought about how difficult it will be to find a palatable version of hava nagilah!!!

We had a medley of a bunch of different ‘horas’ (horaot?!) and think ours lasted 15 or 20 minutes, if not more. It was long! We had a band so honestly, not sure which songs they played, since they played a few. If you’re having a DJ, and want a hora longer than 3 minutes, I’d have him get a few different songs instead of just one.
In terms of finding a hora that you like? I’d check youtube, or the jewish music database http://www.jmwc.org/jmwc_webres.html

I think it was Ms. Hedgehog who found this version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF2p87nvsjU
I really like it! I think it’s catchy and modern. It is only about 3 1/2 minutes though.
