    and this right here is my problem with jewish music

    why would you want to remix a brilliant song and make it sound like some song playing from a shvazer cab driver`s radio

    chaim, I have seen this type of complaint a few times. I happen to love this type of music. Take Fried’s new CD. The 4 songs on that CD I really love are all new fresh styles for him, especially the electronic stuff. (and the stuff I don’t like sounds like it could have been on his CD 10 years ago)

    Music, like all art, changes with generations and times.

    Now, there is a tendency to compare todays “electronic goyish style” to the classics of yesteryear, the Forever One’s, the Just One Shabbos (or Yidden) … ”

    Let me play doctor for a minute, I think you are romantasizing that era in your head. Those songs were ALL influenced by the music of their time and the arrangers arranged the music from what was popular and trending of those years. It’s a major flaw in how we judge Jewish music, and how we claim it’s goyish and somehow deviating from “classic” chassidic Jewish music, just because the song doesnt have brass and a choir singing oy oy yoy” in the background.

    Chassidishe nigunim all have a style was popular 200-400 years ago in Europe. That’s why they all sound like Polish march songs. What makes them Heilik is a Rebbe composed them or various Chassidim and talmidei chachamim.

    Just to make one last point. What is even more debilitating to how we compare “chassidic jewish music” to today is that there is only really one classic era of Jewish music that lasted from the late 70’s to the mid to late 80’s. MBD himself said multiple times that his music, the same “classic” music you are referencing, was influenced by the times. Just as his current hits like Omar Rabbi Akiva and Kulam Ahuvim were.

    It’s this type of thinking that is handicapping artists and Jewish music and not allowing it to ever truly adapt and expand, because you want it stuck in 1982 when Moshe Laufer, Yisroel Lamm and Mona all made arrangements based on the music they enjoyed in 1982.

    If chassidic Jewish Music started in the 50’s I guarantee you it would all sound like Elvis and the Beatles. And then when MBD came around and Mona started using brass (from all the 70’s disco songs that were popular then) people would have called his style Goyish … now we call it “classic” …

    the thing is this – i have nothing against using even a non jewish song and turning it into a niggun,
    im chabad myself and chabad have long been embracing things like satalite internet etc to bring light to the world…

    heck i have no problem with mbd`s funky songs like let my people go or yidden, even with a really good guitar riff or bassline thats great – the more lebidig the better

    but when you blatently rip off and try to be like the goyim, thats a different thing

  4. notsofast says:

    thats great, im chabad too, but I think you either skimmed through my in depth comment, or just missed my point entirely.

    the style you are claiming is “blatantly ripping off”, is in fact the style that “the velt” is into right now. Just as the songs we all loved from MBDs golden era, were all “blatantly ripping off” earth wind and fire, and about 30 other popular disco bands from the late 70’s.

    This is a case of “when I was a kid …. bread was a nickel and and water was free”

    You could easily travel back to 1982 and make the SAME EXACT argument with Fried and MBD’s early “classic” albums.

    The same way “we” use satalite(and now internet) by taking a “blatantly goyish” advance in technology and use it for a good purpose, to achieve good and inspiring kosher things, artists today want to take the style of today and make achieve the same positive things.

    What kind of glasses do you wear? I hope not the latest “goyish” ones. You should use the same ones your father wore. Same thing for your car, dont buy the new one with an aux jack and gps and hands free calling. Get the same beaten station wagon our parents drove in 1982 …

  5. chaim says:

    i suppose your right – i just dont like change,

    when i see for example hascs with the tiny 8 piece orchestra i cringe – they used to have at least a 30 plus orchestra (once they had 60 at hasc 2),

    my point is it if aint broke dont fix it, which they would stop trying to modernise jewish music, it can stll be how it was 10 years ago and still be good

    moshiach now!

  6. shloimo says:

    and don’t forget MBD’s “Yiden”, that was famous hit of German disco band “Chingiz Khan” in 70’s – 80’s
    and just compare equipment that was then and now. Modern singers just using modern equipment. Perhaps even old school arrangers and composers they used all kind of stuff to make their music to inspire you…
    Even if you start to compare classic sefardic arrangements and the modern ones – huge difference as well

  7. nechama says:

    this is an interesting topic. i think about this alot. i think that even though those in the jewish music world have been using goyish tunes since basically it started, the level of the type of music in the goyish world has gone down to some undesirable levels. to copy goyish music when it is at a certain (moral) level is one thing, but to copy it because people have been doing it for long time , no matter the level, is another. i think the jewish and goyish music reflect each other.whatever level in the spectrum jewish music is, goyish music is at the same on the opposite side of the spectrum.
    i think im starting to see some lengths being taken to change this

  8. notsofast says:

    nechama, not sure if I understand what you are saying. Are you claiming that todays musical styles are “more” goyish than the styles of the 50’s and 70’s? If so, I’d point out to you that all eras of music are supposedly worse than the eras before, but if you know much about the famous 70’s club disco era you will agree that it’s not better or worse than todays pop electronic music trends. (Maybe even better …)

  9. nechama says:

    ya guess so. i think i was a bit harsh. i think what im trying to say that if you put a song of today and a song of the 70s or whenever together, the latter seems more mellow. But why would someone want to ‘copy’ goyish music and make it their own (and calling it jewish). Its kind’ve missing the point,right? I think my main problem is mixing real stuff with fake stuff.
