There are a number of songs which are my very favorite songs. But one of my very favorite songs are from the days of yesteryear is from Avraham Fried’s very first album, No Jew will be left behind – “Return” – first of all, I love the tune of the introduction to it, secondly, it’s a very heartzig & warm song in my honest humble opinion. After this one, there’s a whole list of songs which I love as well-but the list might be too long to put in here.March 13, 2013 6:08 am at 6:08 am #1032836
ALEPH, BAIS, VAIS, ALEPH, BAIS, VAIS, GIMMEL, DALET, HEY, GIMMEL, DALET, HEY…(Not sure what the title is) That was my son`s submission. He sings it all day so it must be his favorite. You should try it sometime.March 13, 2013 6:09 am at 6:09 am #1032837

“Gretchen am Spinradde.” I especially like Elly Ameling singing it.March 13, 2013 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #1032840WolfishMusingsParticipant
I refuse to answer.
What gives you the right to demand that I “must” answer?

Personally I’m a classical-music man myself so strictly speaking I’d choose a favourite piece of music rather than a favourite song per se. But I won’t tell what it is, so nyer.March 13, 2013 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1032852Rabbi PerfectMember
Well there are quite a number of songs which I really like, but I’d say amongst the top of the list would be Rak Elokim by Chaim YisraelMarch 13, 2013 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #1032853Yserbius123Participant

I’m so burnt out of music…I’ve listened to insane quantities of music from every genre out there and nothing makes me happy anymore. I’m drifting towards country music but I think I’m gonna go back to Jewish music fairly soon.March 13, 2013 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1032865

I have way too many favorite songs to list. Right now it’s Yaleh by Shwekey, Yesh Tikva (although i’m rapidly getting tired of it), and Bernstein’s Candide Overture, which has kind of grown on me lately.March 14, 2013 2:35 am at 2:35 am #1032870mitzvahgirl613Participant

Lately I’ve been enjoying Scottish fiddle instrumentals. Otherwise, I have a Pandora station that started with Yanni about a year ago, and it’s really starting to ripen now. Most recently, I added Dave Brubeck. Other artists on the feed include John Tesh, Apollo 100, The Piano Guys, and Natalie MacMaster (all instrumental).
Google for Piano Guys videos. They’re really cool.March 14, 2013 1:38 pm at 1:38 pm #1032875YusselParticipant

Any type of song you could sing at a kumzitz. All other Jewish music has to much pizzazz in it, but songs sung at a kumzitz make you feel inherently spiritual when you sing them.March 14, 2013 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #1032887oomisParticipant
If we also meant to include non-Jewish music, I love, “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables and “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. Both of those songs bring me to tears (as do the two Jewish songs I meantioned).March 14, 2013 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #1032889
You dont feel inherently spiritual during the first 3 or 4 songs at a wedding? Those high energy numbers with the power chords and the blaring horn lines? I always laugh though during the start of the second dance set when I start singing a song in my head about a traveler from Australia.
Most songs you would sing at a Kumzitz are written in a minor key. That’s a songwritting trick to “tug at the heartstrings”
We associate minor chords and minor key melodies with sad/somber/emotional moments and feelings. So you could write a song with the happiest most joyful pasuk in the Torah and put it in a minor key and it would sound at home at a kumzits.March 14, 2013 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #1032890

Loads of favourite songs.
But one which I absolutely loved was Shir HaShalom/Song of Peace from MBD. Yonatan Sheinfelds version.
Kol Berama (I’m not sure if it is Yigal Caleks or Yossi Greens) is another one of my favourites.April 11, 2013 2:34 pm at 2:34 pm #1032910Git MeshigeParticipant
The responses on this thread prove my point that Jewish Music has officially died.
No point me mentioning my favorite song, noone will know it.
