Abie's (lack of) expression when he talks about how excited he is, is classic Abie...

This is a style that is unique in the Jewish music world. I'm biased as a lifelong friend, but his vocal chops are incredible. Glad he finally put something out.

Nice but what's Jewish about it?

Too mushy for my taste anyway. The Cat's in the Cradle take on fatherhood is more relatable.

Nice but what's Jewish about it?


Why do we have to go through the "what is Jewish music" every darn song that is released.
It's written by a frum Jew.
The lyrics are by a frum Jew.
The performer is a frum Jew.
The lyrics are about his love for his kids. For all the cheesiness, that doesn't make it goyish.
So what's not Jewish about it? That it doesn't repeat the same 4 words or of Tehillim over and over?

I get why you wouldn't like the song, but why the need for this jab?

Jewish songs should center around G-d and our relationship with him.

Not gonna go here (just did) but songs like this about some guy's fatherly feelings, or by MordyShap about its nice to hang with friends, are not sanctioned by halacha.

Point being, it's not a Jewish song just because it's sung and composed by a Jewish artist.

Love
yes, it's like a "love" song. He just replaced "wife" with "child".
but its basically a love song, and I wouldn't be surprised to find part of the lyrics taken from somewhere...

Ah giten:
Love
was a response to the question of whether he liked "Charasho" (nothing to do with "Carry You").
PM me if you'd like to play a board/card game, online or IRL (Lakewood). (I'm not a competition-level player.)

Point being, it's not a Jewish song just because it's sung and composed by a Jewish artist.

Maybe we could use 2 categories:

Jewish/Holy music: center around G-d and our relationship with him.

Parve music: there is nothing "not Jewish" about it.
It's written by a frum Jew.
The lyrics are by a frum Jew.
The performer is a frum Jew. Etc.

What about a song which uses words from psukim to create a "creative musical production"?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
