Music video (rockin’!) – “Uptown Passover”

For those of you who don’t know or pay much attention, Passover is this weekend. As an interpreter, I find myself doing many things , and I have done a Pesach seder (a memorial dinner, if you will, but actually the full version of what the Christians call the Lord’s Supper) or two.

Now Judaism is not generally known for its religious music (even Dr. Laura Schlesinger once said that if you want some really good music, go to the Baptists), but they do know good music when they hear it, and they excel at humor, so here is a wonderfully entertaining parody of “Uptown Funk” by the Jewish a capella group Six13. Some of you will know what they are talking about, but the rest of you will just enjoy the music and start to get an idea of what a Passover Seder (sort of) looks like.

You can’t really tell from the video, but a Seder is long, they read the account of how God brought them out of Egypt, read the Hagadah (the ritual ritual script that guides the whole event), there are some things for the children to do, they wash their hands, drink (and spill) wine, and (finally!) you eat.

BTW, will someone please tell me why you don’t salt the matzoh? Oil and salt are kosher, you know (butter is not the same thing). Or is that just part of the “suffering” paradigm? One night I can understand, but the whole time?

Music video time – one more time!

I couldn’t resist adding just one more. Mike Tompkins is actually very well-known for one particular cover, so here it is. Paradise. (I love this guy!)

Music video time again!

OK, maybe you have heard “Fireflies” ad nauseum, or maybe you are one of those who can’t get enough of it (like me!), or you might even be one of those who has never heard it (gasp!), but as much as I love the original check out this cover done by Michael Tompkins (no instruments). Heard of him? Good! Never heard of him? You are in for a treat. This is one of his early videos – love his work. Enjoy!
