I don’t know if it’s goyish but most jewish music produced today is not very good. it’s too loud, too beat-driven, and it’s all from a cookie-cutter mold designed to produce songs for weddings. There’s very little genuine creativity in modern jewish music because (like it’s secular conter-part) it’s designed to be sold as a commercial product to make money.July 16, 2019 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #1759981
based on your posts it seems not to be your religion either. What gives?July 16, 2019 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #1759984
Why would English words make something goyish? As long as the tune is fine i don’t see a problem, and if anything the opposite is true, when the words are in english more ppl will understand which will make the song actually meaningfulJuly 16, 2019 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1760001
@yussel You are enferring that it was ever different? Sturgeon’s Law. Out of the gazillion Jewish songs that come out every month, a small handful are really good. Those will end up living on, being sung at kumzitzes and chasunas for generations. The rest will be forgotten.July 16, 2019 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1760109
If its not Yiddish its goyishJuly 16, 2019 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1760112
yserbius12: In the days of The Rabbi’s Sons, Carlebach, etc. the music was not the way it is today. Even the early Mordechai ben David (i remember when we still called him by his name and not MBD) had more “soul” to it than what we hear today.July 16, 2019 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1760124
Are sure that the Jewish dialect of “Brooklynese” is still English, or is it a new dialect of English, similar to how the Jewish dialect of German became Yiddish. Note that most Jews considered Yiddish to be be German until World War II. So why isn’t “Judeo-English” a kosher Jewish language, just like Judeo-German and Judeo-Spanish
Or are you saying Jewish songs have to be in Hebrew, to the exclusion of Yiddish, Ladino, Aramaic, etc.July 16, 2019 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1760127
Some singers still have depth to they’re music, take avraham fried for example, most of his music has depth,July 16, 2019 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1760136
So Hashem Melech is more Jewish than journeys songs?July 16, 2019 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #1760133
So you are going to claim a song like “Siyata Dishmaya” by Miami Boys Choir (1984) is goyish? or Avrohom Fried’s “no jew will be left behind”? or Mordechai Ben David’s “someday we will all be together”?July 16, 2019 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1760233
It’s not a Jewish song if it doesn’t have random Spanish thrown in for no reason.July 16, 2019 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #1760309
“…most jewish music produced today is not very good. it’s too loud, too beat-driven, and it’s all from a cookie-cutter mold designed to produce songs for weddings…..
So Yussel, if we were to redirect Jewish music composers away from their primary focus on chasunahs, you would only worsen the shidduch crisis since without such background noise, even fewer would be willing to incur a lifetime of debt and putting up with their machatonimJuly 17, 2019 8:15 am at 8:15 am #1760350
What about words in Creole German?July 17, 2019 8:17 am at 8:17 am #1760382
Abe Rotenberg ,
Come on and ride the train.
As non Jewish as can be. Right?
I think the title just got confused
It should say
Goyish music with Hebrew words = goyishJuly 17, 2019 8:17 am at 8:17 am #1760383
I actually meant
“come with me little neshamahleh”
But I got confused because they are so similar in message
Obviously according to the op a bad goyish messageJuly 18, 2019 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #1761486
The only truly Jewish music = leining.July 18, 2019 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1761524
You think the leviim in the bais hamikdash just sang the trop ?July 19, 2019 10:08 am at 10:08 am #1761618
Thank you modsJuly 19, 2019 10:31 am at 10:31 am #1761634
I fully agree, Music isn’t just for chasunas. I personally have trouble relaxing to Od Yeshama.
