    With all the songs out there, not one is suitable to play while killing flies! Someone write me a song about killing.

    Another failing is that most of that junk isn’t Jewish.

    You mean most decent songs that serve as a decent soundtrack for bug murder?

    another failing is that the singers are taking pure goyish music with a goyish taam-that affects everyones yiddishkeit-& just changing the words to jewish words.

    is it stealing from the original singer? that is a different topic for a different time

    Jakob, the taking of goyish music is also a topic for another time. Right now I need a song to play while I exterminate the local insect population.

    I think MBDs תמחה את זכר עמלק should do nicely.

    The beat and melody of that song are better suited for dancing.

    It would also be nice if there were a Jewish song that one could sing triumphantly surrounded by dead bugs.

    If I pay a goy to write me a song, giving him specific instructions as to what kind of song I want, is it a goyish song?

    Depends on how you define the problem with a “Goyish” song. If the question is simply one of content, it should be fine (like Sukkas Ganba”ch). If it’s a question of Kadusha, even Gadol Omeid Al Gabov wouldn’t help (similar to Kesivas Sefer Torah, et al).

    So, probably a Machlokes between the Litvish and the Chassidim.

    Don’t kill the fly
    Because that swatter is too pretty
    To be smacking a bug all spitty
    Kill kill kill your anger!
    Kill kill kill your fear!
    Kill kill kill no one my dear!
    Because your sweater is too plush
    For you to murder in a rush
    Or in slow-motion
    And at all
    So murder murder murder your will to kill
    And Hashem will deliver an airplane to pick up the fly and they’ll go back to the sky
    Because at the end of the day
    Winged beasts or no-winged beasts only want to play

    Lightbrite, that is exactly the opposite of what is needed! Flies must be destroyed! They are the enemy!

    “Zipzap23: Do I leave? Rebbe Zoomzoom sent me as a shliach to buzz around this n sweet lady because she clearly needed the company, but now she’s trying to kill me!

    I want out but my Rebbe tells me to stay and she’ll calm down, but now she’s at some virtual coffee shop demanding someone make the proper tune for her to send me to Olam Haba. But I’m not ready to die! This was never a suicide mission!!!

    HELP!!! How do I get her to see that I’m really on her side? Is she so oblivious to my Sh’ma that she doesn’t hear it? Can’t she I’m davening for her?

    To think, before coming here I was buzzing all over the world. People paid me to travel near and far for chizzuk and brachot! I cannot let all Hashem’s people down by getting myself killed.

    All she needs is a cup and piece a paper if she wants me gone anyway. I’ll go to my next assignment. My Rebbe will understand. Just please lady chill and have emuna. No one was sent to you to be murdered.

    If you all don’t hear from me again, sending you all blessings for the best. And I pray Hashem has rachmanos on her when she’ll be doing teshuva. Thanks.”

    if you live in eretz yisrael you may have a chiyuv midin kibush as it says pen yirbeh alecha chayas hasadeh. Dov shurin may be appropriate. Or perhaps depending on your interpretation of baal zevuv it may be a chiyuv to uproot avodah zarah. There may also be sfek sfekah d’pikuach nefesh due to zika etc. But you must take into account possible dangers from animal rights activists such as litebrite. You should probably speak to a competent orthodox rabbi before taking any action musical or otherwise.

    I was very clear with the flies that I want them out of the house. They have been trying to harm me and the only thing stopping them is their puny little limbs. I have the right to use lethal force if necessary to get the insects out.

    the flies were there before you, they are just freedom fighters to get back their territory. It is just evil human racist colonialism that makes you think you have a right to kill the poor innocent creatures. You are as bad as the Nazis committing fugicide (noun, the deliberate and systematic extermination of a winged species.) We will boycott you by not replying to any of your posts however funny or useful they may be.

    Two months ago, none of the flies were there, but I was.

    There are 2 problems with so-called Jewish music: it ain’t Jewish, and it ain’t music.

    Then is it muttar to use goyish music for this purpose?

    #1324499

    I wonder if there won’t be any more utter silliness around here.

    I’m here… just not posting as often…y’know life B”H has a lot… And also.. sometimes, just sometimes, I get busy… real busy…. I try to retain the upbeat, jovial, happy mood, attitude and atmosphere in real life!!!

    #1391541

    It wasn’t that you weren’t there, but that (IIRC) you were using a different screenname at the time.
