Bela Tar - Apple Hill



Step into Bela Tar's dreamlike world here.

There is a place where love echoes
I have never seen it with my eyes
Hidden among the trees like a
Radiant moon behind the clouds

Far out
Near apple hill
I'm waiting for you still
Away from the people
Your lonely house is standing tall
A falling tree a crashing wall
There they were my heart and soul
But I was never there at all

Mountains above the old gold mine
Elevations eery and sublime
Painted with magical poems
Your forgotten words and rhymes

Lost time
Near apple hill
I'm waiting for you still
Away from the people
Your lonely house is standing tall
A falling tree a crashing wall
There they were my heart and soul
But I was never there at all

The Crotches - Good Night Prejudice



The Crotches are back, louder than ever, to wish good night to all that is dark and to wake up those who are letting darkness take over our lives.

Good night, sleep tight, sweet dreams, my darlings, the most in the world.

Good night prejudice,
Good night pride of the nation,
Sleep tight, sweet dreams.

Good night xenophobia,
Good night to the racists,
Sleep tight, sweet dreams.

Good morning, enough sleep, proletariat!

And to the tyranny of the majority,
To the war that will come,
Sleep tight, sweet dreams.
Good night to anxiety,
To all the ministers of intimidation,
Sleep tight, sweet dreams.

Good night, enough sleep, proletariat!

Roy Rieck - A ballad of blind love or vanity



Fabrizio De André (1940-1999) was a beloved Italian singer-songwriter but unfortunately most Israelis have never heard of him. Roy Rieck (of Acollective) hopes to change that with his labor of love, an album featuring ten of De André's songs translated into Hebrew. It's been a while since I've wanted to dance to such a dark yet delightful song! Check out the original over here.

An honest man, a quite romantic man
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
He fell desperately in love
With a woman born without emotions

She told him tomorrow bring with you
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
She told him tomorrow bring with you
Your mother's heart for my dogs

He immediately left and murdered his mother
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
He ripped her heart from her chest
He came back excited to his love

The heart isn't enough, the heart isn't enough
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
It's not enough pain
She wanted more proof that he loves her

She told him sweetie if you want me
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
She told him sweetie if you want me
Cut your veins and let them bleed

He cut his veins and also the flesh
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
And when his blood began to flow
Like a madman he came back to her

She said with full-throat laughter
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
She said with full-throat laughter
Death is the final test

While his blood was still dripping
The cold vanity is celebrating
The color of the blood has already changed
A man died from blind love

Outside there's now a pleasant wind
Tralalalalla tralallaleru
But she goes out of her mind
When she sees him happy and dead

Happy and dead and in love
She has nothing left now
Without love, without anyone
Just dried blood from his wrists

EREZ ft. WhiteO - Certainly



Erykah Badu first sang the lines "The world is mine when I wake up, I don't need nobody telling me the time" 20 years ago, but they still need to be heard loud and clear today. Thank you EREZ and WhiteO for uncovering this gem while adding your own original touch.

Who gave you permission to rearrange me
Certainly not me
Who told you that it was alright to love me
Certainly not me

I was not looking for no love affair
And now you want to fix me
I was not looking for no love affair
And now you want to mold me
Was not looking for no love affair
Now you want to kiss me
Was not looking for no love affair
And now you want to control me
Hold me

You're really trying to get creative with me love
And that's alright, but
You tried to get a little tricky turned my back
And then you slipped me a mickey

The world is mine
When I wake up
I don't need nobody telling me the time

Certainly, certainly, certainly not me

Who gave you permission to rearrange me
Certainly not me
Who told you that it was alright to love me
Certainly not me
I was not looking for no love affair

Certainly, certainly, certainly not me
