Can anyone advise some good Purim music and a place to download / buy it?
I realise that ‘good’ is a bit subjective, but I’m looking for something not carzily laberdik, also I prefer with Litvish pronunciations (as opposed to Chassidish or Sfardi).
I have often heard Puim music being played which sounds like it is mostly sung by a group of children – does anyone know what that CD is?

Just a warning but it is important to vet the music. Sounding Litvish/Chassidish/Sefardishe is not raaya. I know a very chassidishe family that would never listen to music produced by goyim/not-frum and they didn’t realize the purim CD they play at their purim mesiba is really goyishe songs which were popular a decade ago with the lyrics now changed to be about purim and the instruments changed to synthesizer and clarinet.March 1, 2020 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #1836692ubiquitinParticipant

Purim yeshivish by Yosef Moshe Kahana (l’chaim tish). it’s on spotifyMarch 2, 2020 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1836732Arye613Participant
Chinuchmusic.com has all classic Jewish music to download. It’s karaoke style with no vocals.March 2, 2020 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #1837039
Thanks, yeah I went searching around online a bit (as much as my filter allows) and of those that I listened to, the one you mentioned was closest to what I was looking for. I couldn’t figure out how to download/buy from Spotify, but I found the CD for sale on a different site for 20 NIS, so I got it there. Thanks.
Still open to more suggestions if anyone has.March 2, 2020 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1837133ElishevaS27Participant
DJ Judaa has some great Purim mixes on YouTube, soundcloud, and his websiteMarch 3, 2020 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1837344Yserbius123Participant
If you want to exclude any album that has goyish tunes or is influenced by goyish tunes, you won’t find any Purim music at all.
Even this very Yeshivish amateur CD someone gave me that they found in a random discount bin in Yerushalayim had issues. I recognized “Final Countdown”, “Pick a Bale of Cotton”, and “Seven Nation Army”, all very goyishe songs.March 3, 2020 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #1837356rationalParticipant

Can someone please explain to me… I found the album that #anycard mentioned, on Spotify (I’m assuming I can’t post a link here, so search for “Purim yeshivish Kahana” / “פורים ישיביש כהנא”) .
…Many of the tracks on Spotify seem to be cut off and not play to the proper end of the song. Is that a feature of Spotify? I assumed so (never used Spotify before), but then when I couldn’t find a way to buy or legally download it from Spotify, I found it instead for sale on a different website, which I bought. But the tracks ALSO seem CUT-OFF. Have I been ripped off, or is that just how the actual CD sounds?

The songs are meant to play continuously, blending into each other. If you listen to a standalone track it will sound like it stopped randomly but if you listen to two consecutive tracks it will transition nicely.March 3, 2020 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1837392
@Yserbius123 – Obviously Pick a bale of cotton is used for mishenichnas adar. What songs used the tunes from Final Countdown (other than chasuna intros) and Seven Nation Army?March 3, 2020 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #1837403☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant
The listed track lengths on Amazon Music are indeed rather short.
(Amusingly, the album is “#2822 in Dance & Electronic”.)March 4, 2020 5:02 am at 5:02 am #1837500☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant
It’s likely that no use was made of either song’s vocal melodies.March 4, 2020 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1837554anonymous JewParticipant
I find the constantly repeating goyish music streams amusing. Virtually all of Jewish music is borrowed from the cultures we’ve lived in over the centuries. Most of us weren’t alive in the 1800’s so we aren’t aware of the goyish, Eastern European origins of “true Jewish” music. It’s also why Bukharin, Iranian ,Yeminite and Iraqi Jewish music sounds nothing like Litvak or Chassidish musicMarch 8, 2020 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #1838575ElishevaS27Participant
