A Passover Redemption Song

This is not your typical Passover song.

“Goodbye Egyptland”

Words and Music by Daniel Brenner



This song is written from the perspective of one of the “mixed multitude” – an Egyptian who watches the destruction of the plagues and chooses to join the Hebrews in their escape from Egypt. I wanted to counter the “silly songs” about the plagues that I’ve heard over the years and offer a new perspective on the tale we tell each seder night.
