I don't get it... I haven't heard "A Simple Wish" or "Got Something For You," but ASSUMING those are Hanukkah tunes... you've got 3 songs out of 14. May as well just call this BitchTapes what it is: Christmas Jams.

If she'd called it a christmax mix, then it wouldn't have made sense to include the hannukah songs, and i'm glad that those are on there (the beck song rocks!). there are way fewer popular hannukah songs than christmas songs, and i'm glad that bitch is giving a shout out to a couple.

Bitch Media has a variety of contributors who all hold different opinions on different issues.

I, for one, think it's possible to enjoy Amy Winehouse and hear (and not even necessarily agree with!) what Anita Sarkeesian has to say about the song at the same time.
