What is your favorite rendition of Hava Nagila?

Personally, I have to go with Harry Belafonte from his live album

None better.


Oops, it is on his collection CD. My bad.

Does anyone remember a Jewish show back in the 70's here in LA? It was on Channel 52 and it always ended with this wonderful woman dancing and singing Hava Nagila? I remember her so vividly.

That was my favorite version

There's a band from Texas called Brave Combo that does Hava Nagila as a twist. Very good, in my opinion.
