Song of the Week: The Sun

Watch out Bob Dylan.  Yerachmiel Goldstein is coming.

Yerachmiel is a folk singer from New York.  His music evokes the folk music of the 60's but is heavily influenced by his chassidic learning and Jewish studies.

This music is powerful, folks.  Press play and enter his world.

 

[audio:http://mayanotinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/The-sun.mp3|titles=The Sun by Yerachmiel Goldstein]

 

The sky is fixed

In moonlit eyes

Never asking why

Nor to know

 

And the sea tells the sun

Who asks the one

Where did I come from

And go

 

But who cares!

They cried

At the limited sky

Never asking why

Nor to know

 



 

Well I’ve done my share

To all those who care

And I guess

There’s not much  more

 

So shouting I sighed

To the men who cried

Always saying goodbye

To the sun

 

Well do I go

Where the sun begins to snow

And the fun begins to go

Away

 



 

And the thrills I sought

Were null and void

Being one of the boys

And the men

 

So out on my own

Where I've been trampled to the bone

That led me home

Again

 

And the moon still moans

At the sun’s reigning throne

Thought it’s not its own

But pretends

 

And beyond the stars

And In between mars

And far within all

that grows

 

And Limitless light

That Hides behind the night

Withholding all its might

With a sigh

  5. Very reminiscent of Dylan - but softer. I hope you continue writing and let chassidus influence your lyrics. Do you play live anywhere? The Jerusalem scene could use more folk music!

  6. Hey- thank you! I'd love to start playing live - though I'm not sure of many places around here- still relatively new- any suggestions?

  7. I would check out Reshimu - they do an open mic poetry slam there once a week, and judging on the variety of acts, you would probably be a hit. Otherwise, I only know Shtar, www.shtarmusic.com, who play all around Israel. If you want to get in touch with them, they are really nice guys and could probably get you involved with one of their shows. They're playing in the old city Wednesday night for the festival :)

  10. Doesn't it make sense to get yourself a CD with all this advertising?
