Yuda, Yuda Ya Yuda! • Hasmachot

The craziest sound of late '90s Israel. Wow.

TTT :: Haleluhu • Nissan

Yossi Green: WHERE ARE YOU?

"Nissan" is a Shlomo Simcha production. This song is brought to you and harmonized by Yossi Green.



The sad is that I get tremendously nostalgic—Stockholm Syndrome?—when hearing this song, as it played incessantly in "86", our London flat. Eh.

Koili El Hashem • Isaac Honig

We introduced him earlier this week with v'Olu Moshi'im. I've been on a bit of a bender with this guy because he's basically very varem.

TTT :: Yalla • Yaakov Shwekey

From Libi Bimizrach, 2010


Just good enough to make you listen again. Just earworm-y enough to make you wish you skipped it. Grrr. Terrible.

Similar songs, similar sounds.

This MBD has some serious power.

This mountain needs immediate love.

Lecha Dodi • Baruch Levine, TTTO Yisroel Werdyger

This song covers a well-known story of a Muslim teen who left Ramallah and found his Jews.

"There is a song I'd like to sing, but I can't find it here. I really liked what we sang in the synagogue tonight. What was it called? Something ‘dodi.'" Read the whole story

Chosson Domeh Limelech • Eli Hertzlich

Composed by Mona (Moshe) Rosenblum, first heard by us on last Wednesday's wedding band compilation, sung very well by Berry Weber. Sourced by Benny Friedman (thanks!).

Great accompaniment down the vegetable aisle when shopping for Shabbos (an observation indirectly made in the first comment on the Youtube video).

Ahhhh, much better.

TTT :: Daaga Minayin

"How", you ask, "can the best song ever composed and ever recorded and all that end up as a TTT?"

"For precisely that reason", I respond. "When such a song ends up like this, oy, TT!"

8th Day - Love the cover; don't know why the video (not theirs!) has a male beggar.

Fun & Freilach! • Various Wedding Band People

Yoni Eliav Band, with Shloime Taussig, Berry Weber, ?Yossi Berger?, ?Nemuel Harush? and Mendy Jerufi!



Quite enjoyable compilation, and with several under-played tunes. I'd consider hiring them with Berry Weber.

Stay warm!
