Song of the Week 12/18/22 - 12/24/22 (Hanukkah and more)


Happy Hanukkah 2022

Earlier in the week I listening to Shlomi Shabbat and Yehuda Poliker.. Listen to this special rendition 10:49 into the video. It's amazing.  

This got me thinking. I know I recognize that song but what it is.  I googled Yom Sababa and found another version:

Have you figured it out yet?   If you give up stay tuned, and I'll tell you what it is at the end of todays blog.

Very soon the Israel Hour Podcast should be out that featured my playlist.  Please check back here and I'll post a link to it. In the meantime, I wanted to share an article by Israel Hour Host Josh Shron.  This article shares and explains the 2020 songs when music mattered more than ever

Again, I couldn't leave you without sharing the latest and interesting Six13 Hanukkah video and it's like the candle in the window !!!!

Still don't recognize the song. Flip your phone, tablet, or monitor over to reveal the answer:

Songs for the weekend and cool info!

Friday morning I was thinking about this song:

I know it’s not the best recording but to see Haim Moshe sing live is awesome. This song has been stuck in my head since Thanksgiving. I’ve been trying to shake it loose. This song Tishmeru Al Atzmechem (Take Care of yourself):

Here is an instrumental version.

This song got me totally in the mood for Shabbat as it is such a spiritual type song. 

Well after finding that song I found something more intriguing. I was recommended a video that had a lot of Haim Moshe songs in it. So I clicked on this link. Up popped a small album of some Haim Moshe songs that i recognized. A few I didn’t. Song #4 caught my attention.

Song #4 I was thinking I know that I had heard this song somewhere and it might have been at a Camp Rikud (Israeli dance camp). I stopped what I was doing and texted David Dassa asking him if he or his father Dani Dassa created a dance to this song. I know he created a dance to Haim’s Nishba. TRANSLATION (I take an Oath)

Watch Nishba Dance

That’s not the song I wanted to feature today but it’s another one of my favorite songs. So David replied to my message and said yes his father created a dance to this beautiful song “Shivat Piley Tevel. I knew I wasn’t loosing my mind yet. That made me feel a lot better.

This song translates to 7 wonders of the world. I didn’t find a lyrics translation of it anywhere. But the music and the lyrics are very interesting. I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the music!
