    Gosh, I really don’t feel the need to defend my post, as goody613 apparently took one word from the post and made assumptions based on that. Please do yourself a favor goody and go look what “rocky” was in reference to.

    I’ll help ya out here, ‘cuz it seems like it was difficult in the first place. “Rocky” was a side warning that if you would be looking into purchasing CD’s from a certain band, to STAY AWAY FROM THE ROCKY ONES. I doubted anyone here would appreciate those tracks, I certainly wouldn’t classify them as inspirational.

    That band has awesome Hebrew tracks with world class guitar music and I wanted to share the appreciation I have for it and the simcha and hana’ah I have when listening.

    Goody – It would be a VERY good thing for you to take a moment to understand before making impulsive, snap judgements. It certainly sounds like that when it’s clearly written there. Your judgements were completely taken out of context.

    Goody, can you think of something positive to add here? You seem to be nitpicking other people’s words, which end up being entirely unfounded….

    I’m sorry for the acerbic tone, but the situation called for it.

    —- Kapusta, I agree with you. Although there are exceptions. Anyone ever hear the Simply Tsfat track “Im Atah Me’amin she’yicholim L’itakel, ta’amin she’yicholim L’takein?” It’s a fast niggun, yet extremely inspirational. It’s a quote from R’ Nachman of Breslov “If you beleive you can break/ruin something, you HAVE TO beleive that you can fix it to.”

    So what about Carlebach music?

    What are your thoughts on the ones outlined abvove? Have you heard any of those musicians or CD’s?

    I wrote out what I thought were the best of the bunch…

    I want to hear your thoughts on those albums…. or music.

    * actually have a hard time listening to R’ Shlomo Carlebach’s music and prefer listening to the generation of people he inspired….

    I need to add a few songs to my previous list:

    – Machnisei Rochomim: Abish Brodt (ty insuranceguy for the reminder)

    – HK”BH Anachnu Ohavim Otcha: where does this originate from? I enjoy Schwekey’s Hebrew/Yiddish version on Project X

    – Omar R’ Akiva: Meron Lag B’omer style!

    You simply can’t miss that tremendous FEELING when hearing or singing these songs.

    Machnisey Rachamim was actually composed by Reb Chaim Banet; many performers have recorded it but it was first recorded on one of the composer’s Ranenu Chassidim choir albums. (and funny that someone called Insuranceguy would remind someone of Abish Brodt who is himself an insurance guy).

    HKB”H Anachnu Ohavim Otcha is an old nigun but the words come from the Na Nachers.

    A multi disk set of new recordings of R’ Chaim Banet’s niggunim has come out in E”Y. Hopefully it will be available in the US as well.

    I have so many songs that inspire me. If I have time, I will B’N, try to put together my top ten list. For now at least I could put down the song that would be at the top of my list. It would be “Lev Tahor” from Dveykus from their first album. I was just listening to it last night and it really is such a beautiful song, so full of meaning and the music is amazing. It’s a shame that style of music is out of fashion. The disco type, while I do like them, I don’t know if I could get inspired by them. It’s mostly the slow music that i find inspiration in.

    Oy, this is harder then I thought. I was just going through my kids Itunes. They have 180 albums, with about 10 songs each!! Yes, I went through most of them. I just went through them. I was I could divide it into my top ten Hebrew and my top ten English. If anyone has an objection to it let me know, before I do both lists.

    Nichoach niggunim (typically known as the chabad compilations) though if I am in a lebedig mood I prefer lively dance music (though the music style and the words have to fit (for example I don’t particularly go for zachreini na)

    A600KiloBear – Reb Chaim Banet is really amazing!! how can one person come up with so many amazing niggunim!?!? could you make a list of just the best kumzitz songs from him alone? infact i’d say it deserves its own post, but anyway as i’m just discovering him i’d really appreciate to know which ones you, and others, like the best, especially for singing. thanks! btw Machnisei Rachamim really blows me away, so much soul!
