    I don’t think this CD is living up to expectations. Maybe I am wrong but you dont have a Tizke, Raboisai, Huts Betuchen ,Reb Zishe, Asara Harugei Malchus .

    i wonder what others think.

    jewish source, I think the songs are nice (especially sheloy asani goy) it takes time till a song becomes popular, give it time.

    #624109

    To all those people who say that lipa’s music is/was goyish, you obviously have never listened to non jewish music. His style might have been popular with hippies in the 70’s who were so high that any music was “spiritual”

    any of the new bands today (or even the old classics) sound nothing like non jewish music. bring me one example of a case where he copied (not the intentional ones like usher or in the jungle) and i will retract this post.

    sweib, Its no different if he copied goyish music of the 70’s, 60’s, or more modern. In fact the 60’s and 70’s were particularly bad non-Jewish music periods (the trash.)

    And why do you exclude something he did intentionally? That is even worse.

    Your definitely not a Draykup you make very good point

    #624112

    Joseph, while much of the 60’s and 70’s were bad, I am not going to argue. however that was not my point. everyone seems to complain that he is taking today’s nonjewish music, which is incorrect. that is also why i excluded the usher and lion king song … b/c those are the two exeptions

    however, joseph, true say … point taken

    btw Gershon Verobas tapes are not yiddish songs at all, is there any halachic problam to take songs from them songs?

    #624114

    i think its good for people to do teshuva

    Gelt is “borrowed” from the Rap genre of music. I am not talking about the words, just the style of music.

    A number of guitar solos sound very much like Jimmi Hendrix (of course Lipa is not playing the guitar, nor is he the musical composer, but it is called his album and his song).

    This is not limited to Lipa. Much of what passes for Jewish music today, the music, the sound and style, is ripped straight from pop culture.

    I recognized definite Kitaro (Japanese New Age) in one piece and some Peter Paul and Mary (60’s) in another.

    Interesting, many of you complain about Lipa using non-Jewish tunes or genre in his CDs, yet the same people know the non-Jewish singers by name. Hmmm. Sauce for the goose isn’t sauce for the gander?

    I loved the new CD, btw. I love Hallilu. It does sound Irish but who said there are no Irish Jews? Many old Chassidish nigunim are from classical music, if anyone wants to go through all Jewish songs.

    Leave it alone people. If you like it, buy it. If you don’t, don’t.

    How do you define Jewish music as opposed to non-Jewish music? What you call Jewish music is really Eastern European Polish and Russian music. A Bukharin or Yemenite Jew, for example, would define Jewish music as something totally different from what you call Jewish music. We’ve always adapted the musical styles of the surrounding culture.

    He is a different type of Kohen. He is like the Gemara says a story Hany trei badchi that are Bnei Olam Habba nobody else.Lets face it he was designed fro this generation.

    Lesschumras. You are splitting hairs. At any rate, we are often not talking about style of music but rather ACTUAL MUSIC from non jewish songs some popular and some not so.

    #624125

    Sorry guys, but the song that aggravates me the most these days is the Rabbi Nachman rip-off of Numa. It’s disgusting how popular the song has become and how many Jewish camp songs/cheers have adopted it.

    #624126

    Lipa has produced a fine, hartzige album, with the exception of the following:

    • #14 The entire song “Hentelech”
    • #13 Carry On “Pick Yourself Up And Go On….And On”
    • #9 Wake Up “Wake Up…Wake Up…Wake Up..”
    • image of torn Kol Koreh against Lipa’s concert
    • back cover: March 9 ’08

    Otherwise, it is a great album, and I love listening!! Keep it up, Lipa.

    An appropriate Chida:

    Thus, the Maharam di Lonzano composed Hebrew lyrics to existing Arab melodies. That is actual music, not musical style.

    Besides the fact that many niggunim are *exactly* the non-Jewish music, not just the style.

    lipa is a talented guy who just happens to know how to use the instruments- or in this case, he knows to hire.

    Meyers, Lipa is not saying that its okay not to be a tzaddik at all. He is saying he is not YET a tzaddik, but he still keeps on trying, he’s not getting tired. That acknowledges the struggle to perfect ourselves, and not to give up even if we stumble along the way. I think that’s a very GOOD message.

    Actually, I thought it was a beautiful song that expresses honestly how someone may feel when he blundered and wants Hashem to help him, because he’s trying to get back on track. (He was obviously alluding to himself and his recent struggle. I think it takes guts and fortitude to sing about one’s personal nisyonos which became public. Most of us never experience that.)

    My favorite line in that song is when he says Who knows how to measure a deed? The way things are measured in this world are not necessarily how their measured “up there”..

    Here’s a great idea. To those who enjoy Lipa, Please continue to enjoy him. For those who don’t, please don’t listen and leave the others alone. Each of us has a right to choose what music we like. Is this the next question on the stupid shidduch list questionnaire? Does the boy listen to Lipa? How shallow have we become?

    I’m not that stupid i know what he meant and i also think its a very nice song, my point is that kids that are not on our level to understand what he means and usally get to understand bits of the song for them they getting a differant message then us.. when u give out a public tape as he did he has to take this into consideration.. last week i heard this 9 year old kid singing this song with just these words (a Tzadik bin eich nuch nisht) do u really think he understands lipa’s message? i dont and thats why i still beleive it was not appropriate…

    meyers, I hear your point, but you could probably say the same for everyone of his songs. In wake Up, he keeps quoting the yetzer Hara, “Sleep is good, my watch is broken, go back under your covers, etc” And then switching to the yetzer tov. If a kid sings just one part, he will also maybe get the wrong message.

    In general, it could be his lyrics are a bit mature for kids, but it doesnt mean its a bad message. When people produce tapes or literature for that matter, they often gear it to one age or another. This is not marketed as a kids tape. For an adult, though, it’s a very powerful message. It’s up to the parents to screen what their kids read and listen to.
