Rebono Shel Olam - Dudu and Avremel

The Lonero Family - Destiny

See, at our Shabbos table we would actually all sing "La la la la la laiiii... la la la la la la laiiii..." And my sister still picks up the phone when I call: "Is that you my brooother?" And I sadly say, "Oh yes, it is I."

Oh my GODDDD, memories! Memories, my good people.

Happy two-thousand-and-ten! See you on the flip :)

You know Dov Levine?

He's gotta a pretty randomly pleasant voice, too.

There will be no song to prove it. Just what it is, is what it is and it is an exercise in trust.

TED Performance - Gustavo Dudamel

Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, 2nd movement.
Then Arturo Márquez' Danzón No. 2. You will remember this from the time previous, and it is as stunning but more so. It is longer and softer at the long and soft spots (11:10) and harsher and crisper at the crispy harsh parts. And more fun where there is more fun being had.

(But I'm also kinda tired of this particular piece. Nu. Nu. Nu. L'artzei. Nu.)

Di Berditchever Kaddish - Jan Peerce

Eliyahu Hanavi - Avraham Fried

Vintage Fried, just because. Off one of my favorite his albums: We Are Ready.
I remember trying to get the "...ishtishebi al shemoni kra..." right. It is not, apparently, "...ishtishebi al shemoni kra..."

Yngwie Malmsteen with the New Japan Philharmonic - Icarus Dream Fanfare

Long story short, read wiki-p about the man. So, he played one of the pieces off of his "Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E flat minor"—a set written by him, scored by a friend (Rosenthal, a Jew), conducted by a different friend (Levi, a Jew), and performed by the Czech Philharmonic (once full of Jews)—with the New Japan Philharmonic. And that is this.

UPDATE: Peretz noted in the comments that I posted the "wrong" clip. So here is the "correct" one. Special Moments: "Violin" at :37 and teeth-playing at 7:00.
