definitely kol berama by simcha leiner. Makes me cry every time:)April 14, 2013 2:57 am at 2:57 am #1032916
crisis: “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.”
Yeah, my parents say that too.
The hysterical part is that that song was apparently copied from a DIFFERENT song.
oomis: I LOVE Bring Him Home- though I just love Les Mis in general, especially Empty Chairs at Empty Tables. So sad…
I love Les Mis (as mentioned above- though not all of it), Wicked (though some songs are better than others), and Shlomo Carlebach (though not in that order). Most of all, though, I like orchestral music, without the vocals taking away from the actual music. As a (would-be) musician, I like to savor the instrumental aspects. I love Mozart (sounds stereotypical, but there is something there that I love that I haven’t found anywhere else), but really I love any orchestral music, even covers of popular songs (it can be surprisingly cool to hear that insipid song from the mall played on the violin). And oomis, The Piano Guys on YouTube has this amazing piano and cello cover of Bring Him Home for after sefirah :). It’s absolutely gorgeous.April 14, 2013 3:09 am at 3:09 am #1032917
writersoul: lol we have like identical tastes in music (surprised?). ^_^ I love the soundtracks from things Disney, Le Mis, Wicked, various other Broadway shows, but mostly I like purely instrumental music (some classical, some no). Also purely a capella music (even when it’s not sefira). My favorites right now are Aquabella, Lindsey Stirling and Eugene Friesen.April 14, 2013 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1032918
OOM: As in that other thread, there are things we disagree on… :), but this isn’t one of them. I LOVE Lindsey Stirling (violin is really cool- almost as cool as flute 🙂 ). Never heard of the others *takes out her after-sefirah list and jots them down*. I also love the Piano Guys- there’s this amazing clip of them playing a song from a particularly well known boy group (which I absolutely loathe) on the piano. It’s absolutely amazing. They do things with that piano you wouldn’t believe.
I like the idea of a capella (the voice is just as much of an instrument as a flute or violin), but then it needs to be a song with lyrics I like. With orchestral music, it doesn’t matter. I do listen to Maccabeats, though the autotuning can get annoying.April 14, 2013 3:46 am at 3:46 am #1032919
haha Aquabella is a capella, so put them on your sefira list. 🙂 I have the same thing with lyrics–actually, it’s more like I don’t like my music to be distracting. So I do like a lot of foreign stuff (like Aquabella). And Lindsey Stirling is soooo awesome! I love her (and Pentatonix’s) cover of Radioactive–did you get a chance to listen to it before sefira? Also that cover of Skyrim she did with Peter Hollens–I have his a capella versions of that and Misty Mountains on my playlist (the Misty Mountains one is realllllllly good. I had my mother listen to that and then his cover of Shenandoah and she was like how is that the same person). Also, for your list :)–specifially, Eugene Friesen’s Dances of Rasputin. and also you can put on S. J. Tucker. cuz she is awesome.April 14, 2013 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #1032922
OOM: I haven’t listened to any specific things by people on purpose- I put a Piano Guys channel on Pandora and her stuff came up :). The a cappella definitely sounds cool- and I really DO need sefirah music… I’m going completely nuts.April 15, 2013 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #1032925
sheesh, okay give me a secondApril 17, 2013 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm #1032928
Ima tagidi li. Never fails to bring me to tears.
Other than that, I go through phases – love a song for a month, get bored, on to the next song.April 18, 2013 10:54 am at 10:54 am #1032931

As a very young person: Ride Captain Ride.
Current One: I’m older and I’d have to spend too much time to figure it out but it’s a kid’s song – probably something about Moshe, Mitzvot or Shabbat (the whole album was pretty good but again for the life of me I can’t figure out what it was – the computer broke and I redid it and I don’t know where the songs got themselves to – I resolved to do backups but never got around to doing it…-okay I don’t know how to do backups-just restart).April 18, 2013 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1032934

as for Jewish songs it’s got to be ko ribbon olam from ari goldwagAugust 17, 2014 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1032960
Sameach by Shalsheles among their other songs
Naya Nigun Ari Goldwag

MattisAugust 17, 2014 7:52 pm at 7:52 pm #1032962
For Jewish music I would go for Avrohom Fried (especially until the Bein Kach U’Bein Kach album) and anything that Abie Rottenberg says let alone sings!
When it comes to non Jewish Musicians nothing beats Yanni. If you would like to know which Yanni songs then it is Acroyali-Standing In Motion and Swept Away from his album and video Live at the Acropolis it is just incredible!!August 17, 2014 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #1032963
Yikesau, why not Mattisyuah.August 18, 2014 11:27 am at 11:27 am #1032964
Malbim, if you will listen to the two Yanni songs I mentioned it should be obvious why Mattisyahu isn’t my flavor.September 14, 2014 4:27 am at 4:27 am #1032966

El Hanaar is indeed a nice song. The album as a whole is terrific. There’s a gap between tracks 19-23, but other than that, it’s great.September 15, 2014 1:24 am at 1:24 am #1032971

am yisrael, yaakov shwekey, kolotSeptember 23, 2014 10:18 am at 10:18 am #1032977
am yisrael, yaakov shwekey, kolot
Are those all songs, all musical groups, or two songs by Yaakov Shwekey and his name?
Also, I’d like to give Lindsey Stirling a chazaka with this third mention.September 23, 2014 11:52 am at 11:52 am #1032978
no i meant my fave song is am yisrael by yaakov shwekey, which is on his latest album, kolot (Jan 2014). I couldn’t be bothered reading the entire three pages of posts…..i just answered according to what this post was originally supposed to be 🙂 which, to remind you, was: your favorite song, who the artist is, and what album the song is on….(i think)December 4, 2019 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1807606
