B"h no one in my family is deaf, so I have no experience signing, but I don't see why not.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

This is legit funny. Funnier if it were released as a real song without the explanation
If you don't care why would you comment?

This isn't technically a song, but it is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time.


Especially after the whole lakewood concert story, it does a great job making fun of rebbeim and their disconnect with bochrim.

Apparently adamah víshamayim was written for avodah zara and should not be listened to
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I was wrong. This is the original
http://thatroundhouse.info/music.htm

Wow. It took some time finding.
The group is Prana. the song is "Tall Trees". The original words: "I feel it in my body, and I feed it to my source." Definitely avoda Zara.

Then Sagol took it and cleaned up the words. The following versions seem to be taken from their version.

I was in the boat that it should be assur to listen to the song and that it's probably A"Z. But I asked my posek, told him that the tunes are the same, and showed him the original transliterated lyrics compared to the lyrics now. He told me - "לענ"ד אני לא רואה שום בעיה"

Here's the lyrics I showed him:

רוח חזקה, מים עמוקים; עצים גבוהים, אש חמה, אני מרגישה את זה בגופי, אני
להאכיל אותו להמקור שלי
Heya heya heya heya heya heya ho (חזור)

(מילים חלופיות)
רוח חזקה, מים עמוקים; כדור הארץ טהור, אש חמה
רוח רכה, אוקיינוס עצום; שמש מוארת, גרנד מאונטן
נשיקה מתוקה, לונג ריבר; כדור הארץ לנצח

And here's Adama:

אדמה ושמים
חום האש צליל המים
אני מרגיש זאת בגופי
ברוחי בנשמתי

הייה הייה הייה הייה
הייה הייה הייה הוו...
Live forever or die trying.

Those aren't an accurate translation of the original lyrics, yuneeq. The original lyrics include the line "I feel it in my body and feed it to the source", which seems to me to be referring to Wiccan earth-worship. (The earth being the source of all things - not god cha"v). You're also mistranslating the line "Mother earth live forever" which isn't in the version you showed him. (The live is missing)

Here is a remix of the real original song with the lyrics. (The ayayayayo is not part of the original song, that was added later.)



BTW, does your psek know Wicca? If he doesn't, he shouldn't pasken.

In essence, Wicca believes their singing and rituals of dancing provide the earth with chiyus. It's basically pagan avoda zara, and that is what Adama Vshamayim is celebrating. Keep in mind if you show a rav "Amazing Grace" he will also think it's muttar if he doesn't understand what "I was lost and now I'm saved" is referring to. Those words are innocuous to the unfamiliar.

Thatís in the lyrics I showed, look again.

I took the lyrics  from Prana version which is the original, donít think anything is missing from that version.

If you have a different/better version of the lyrics that you can send in Hebrew Iíll show it to him.

I stressed to him that the song writer worships the body and the earth, and that song lyrics are a reflection of that. Iím not familiar with Wicca so if itís more than that I didnít say so. I will say that I was not trying to get him say muttar and was a bit surprised when he said so.
