I know that concert by heart, I'm still upset I couldn't make it :(
Same here on both counts.

Clear thinker and JoeyShmoe: If I remember correctly, MBD said that when he was sitting on his porch the IDEA came to him for the song. That would be refering to the lyrics, which he did make.

Or the IDEA of taking an oldies song and putting Jewish words to it.

Thanks, JoeyShmoe. By the way, MBD's Wikipedia page has a few more song adaptions, for those of you who are interested...

Quorum, a Male Vocal Band (none Jewish) Performs a Shloma Yida Rechnitz (jewish) Original at St. Kotryna's Church in Lithuania... Unfortunately this is a rare event, hence there's no need to open a separate forum called 'Non-Jewish Music with Jewish Origins'...





This is the Original vid with more than 650k hits..





I'm glad though they didn't replace the original lyrics with Lithuanian ones...

Very funny how they pronounce with oy but say bayit with a t and not an s
Overall though  they sound natural, I'm impressed!

Mbd's song "soul" has "non jewish" origins?
Does anyone have an idea over that song?
What was going? what was the story there?

Just heard a part of a tune on the radio that sounded eerily similar to Abraham Fried's "there's a small piece of heaven in everyone's heart". Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Heard a bit of a song on the radio that sounded exactly like "Someday" by MBD... Anyone know what I'm talking about? It began with the words "There was a house....", I didn't get the rest.

Highly doubtful. She says all the time that Daddy Dear is a secular song. So she would have no problem saying if Someday was. And she says that it's her original.

Maybe, like with Mordche's Shir Hashalom, she thought of the lyrics, not the tune. Because it was identical to Someday, down to the krechtz by the "When iiiiiiin walked the soldiers" part...
