There's a reason why this song remained unpopular for many years, and I suspect it's because Leonard Cohen's original doesn't sound very pretty. I was gonna post that video originally, but I decided instead to go with the later cover which sounds identical to Bo'i Kalla, and which is really the point of this entire exercise.

It's arguably the most beautiful tune ever written. Give the composer the credit.  :)

I know Leonard Cohen was no holy man, but he was definatly a Jew, so this song technocally doesn't belong in this thread. Just a technocality.

Only if you define "Jewish Music" as music composed by a Jew.

Most people I know do not define it that way. No, I don't have a precise definition, but I think most people I know use the term to refer to music marketed to the frum community.

I had no idea until I was at Citi Field summer of 2015 and heard Juan Uribe's walkup song of "Hashem Melech"...
