God's Playlist: Judaism's Top Ten

Special for Shabbat Shira, the Shabbat of Song, I recently compiled my list of the Top Ten Songs in Jewish History, along with one from Midrashic sources. You can see my list here, with a tribute to Debbie Friedman, and an older version here, along with a detailed explanations for the unusual layout of the Song of the Sea in this week's portion.

Yes, I put "White Christmas" there because it met the standards that I had set - though feel free to disagree. This Shabbat includes not one but TWO of the top ten, the Song of the Sea and the Song of Deborah.

And in memory of the great Debbie Friedman, here's her version of Deborah's song.
