in search of new zemiros tunes
« on: February 01, 2019, 12:30:44 AM »
I'm looking for new non standard tunes for zemiros. For example i really like the dror yikra sang to simon and garfunkels scarborough fair (if you're interested i found someone has it up on youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea1m-HDZ6xM). I would really like to find more zemiros that have good tunes put to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

There are plenty of not so common tunes for zemirosthat are also traditional that you should be able to find if you ask around enough

ask people from different traditions I.e. sfardi , chassidish to teach u some tunes they sing. It can add spice and diversity to ur table

Unless they are ancient non-Jewish tunes

Wow - I only have so much time on a Friday Afternoon:

I get why some people don't appreciate non-jewish songs being used for zmiros/davening - I just consider it being ma'alin b'kodesh :)

- In that Vein Dror Yikra to Sloop John B - https://youtu.be/nYBgkpv5fXs?t=227
- More traditionally Dror Yikra in the classic sefardi version - https://youtu.be/r4B6yL3LH7c

Can't find them on youtube/interwebs with limited time, but a lot of the classic choirs have zemiros out there - I often use Tzlil V'zemer (I think)'s Rachem B'Chasdecha as part of a 'Tzor Mishelo' medley. My wife loves the MBC Menucha V'Simcha

You mean like 'Ha'aderes v'Haemunah' on Shabbos morning to the tune of Les' Marsellies? :)

I recently heard a shiur from Rav Avigdor Miller Zt"l and he said that taking a non Jewish tune and using it for a Jewish words is like taking a goy and being m'gaayer him

What about taking Jewish words and using them for a goyishe song?

Is that like shmad'ing them?
