Pesach Filk!

Er, I usually do a round-up post first, but this is very last minute.

Here are two songs for this year.

The Unicorn Song is missing a verse (the second last), that I just ran out of time.
And Iris was inspired by getting high on cleansers.


So:


Windex
To Iris - By the Goo Goo Dolls

I feel like I've been cleaning forever
But I know that we'll make it somehow
It's the closest to Godliness that I've ever known
But I don't really feel free right now.

And all I can smell is this Windex
And all I can breath now is bleach
I don't think we should combine cleansers
Hey why does Tide taste like peach?

And I'd try to get to Har HaBayit
But I don't think that they'd understand
My Korach is missing that something
Just want to have some sacrificial lamb

And you can't scrub the stains that aren't chametz
'Cause the moment of truth will arrive
The kids are watching Passover movies
But yeah they scream so you know they're alive

And I'd try to get to Har HaBayit
But I don't think that they'd understand
My Korach is missing that something
Just want to have some sacrificial lamb

... I just want to have some sacrificial lamb




Afikoman
To The Unicorn Song by Shel Silverstein (Irish Rovers)

A long time ago before we were free
Pharoah enslaved Jews just like you and me
We suffered so greatly under his reign
And now we sit here and remember that pain
with
Green leafy lettuce and white sticks too
Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
With Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but before we are done
We can't forget the Afikoman.

The Lord heard our cries and they gave Him grief
He said from the bush "I'm gonna send relief"
He said "Moshe go and topple that dictator "
... but you won't be mentioned at the the Seder
They'll have

Green leafy lettuce and the white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but we won't be done
Till we can find the Afikoman.

Egypt suffered from blood, lice, and frogs
Locusts, boils, darkness, and wild dogs
But Pharoah finally gave up, was so forlorn
When Hashem came down and slayed his first born
... But

We've got green leafy lettuce and white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but the simple son
Just stepped on the Afikoman

Well out in the desert the Jews complained
"No food! No water! It barely rained!"
But Moshe told them to trust the Holy One
And down from the sky there came delicious Maan.
And it tasted like
Green leafy lettuce and the white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, and lastly some
Tasted like the Afikoman.

Oh Look, It's Pesach!

Time for the yearly Pesach Filk.

Not our best work, but the kids really like this song. Sooo...

A Greasy Pesach

Well now I can say I know how to autotune...

Here is my duet with myself performing A Greasy Pesach - We Just Can't Stop (You're the one that I want)
A song about obsessing over Pesach.




Lyrics here.

Pesach Song 5771 (A Greasy Pesach)

This year's song is about obsessing over every aspect of Pesach, from the cleaning, to the chumrot, to the cost of buying everything.

We Just Can't Stop (You're the One That I Want)Collapse )

Pesach Song Roundup

First a round up of previous years:
5770
Last year featured Lady Gaga's Strange Halachic Stance, which can be found here.


5769
Our Official song was a version of Like a Prayer which can be found here. Also there is a finished version of the War of 1812, and the Rainbow Connection (Pesach collection), and an unfinished version of "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast.

The rest of the cutting room floor consisted of half a filk of "Through the Fire" from the Buffy Musical.
A version of "Boom De Yada" like the Discovery Channel did.
A really bad attempt at a Pesach-Roll for Never Gonna Give You Up.

5768
The official song of the year was based on the Last Saskatchewan Pirate.
The cutting room floor included such gems as Seasons of Love, One Week, The War of 1812, and The Rainbow Connection. Two of these were updated and finished for 5769.
And don't forget that we made the front page on Albino Black Sheep that year with Matzah Matzah Fish

5767
One of our finest pieces. We filked Master of the House from Les Mis for Pharoah of the Nile

5766
This year we did the Time Warp with Let's Clean For Pesach Again.
At that link you'll also find the cutting room floor versions from The Rembrandts, Queen, and Harry Chapin.

5765
We made a mistake this year and spoofed This is Halloween from the Nightmare before Christmas with This is Seder Night, but the song wasn't well known enough for it to go over well.
You'll also find some Lion King at that link.

5764
I'm still kind of fond of the Hotel California version we did this year.

5763
Still one of our all time greatest classic hits. We did Sloop John B. in a version we sing at the seder every year now.

Pesach Song 5770

This year did not have the most prolific cutting room floor. I briefly attempted to go along with a Michael Jackson theme like housedaddy's Billy Jean cover. I'll post my brief attempt at Thriller later.

This year's song is about B'nei Yisrael's acceptance of the Torah and everything in it without even knowing what was in it. Including some of the stranger halachic concepts.

Source Material here. (Warning the video is a little racy).
Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" is now my:
Strange Halachic StanceCollapse )

This Year's Pesach Song

We have two songs we finished off from previous cutting room floors, and two songs that we are still working on this year. You can vote for your favourites!

The unfinished:
To the Tune of 'Belle' From Beauty and the BeastCollapse )

EDIT: I think I wrote the missing verse... still needs some cleaning up though.
To the tune of 'Like a Prayer' by the Gashmius GirlCollapse )

And from last year:

The Pesach Collection (The Rainbow Connection)Collapse )

And finally:

To 'The War of 1812' by Three Dead Trolls in a BaggieCollapse )

PESACH-ROLL (Cutting room floor part 2)

This was my first idea for a song this year. It's not going to be what we're presenting, but here it is.

Even Though We're Going Up - (Never Gonna Give You Up)Collapse )

And the original:

Here We Go Again!

It's that time of year again. I'll provide links to all our past years songs tomorrow (ideally), but for now here's the first out of the gate this year. (Probably not the official song).

Based on the Discovery Channel's spoof of a classic camp fire song.

I love the Seder
I love four cups of wine
I love the matzah
I love making rhymes
I love this whole night
And all it's minhagim

Boom dee odda, boom dee odda,
Boom dee odda, boom dee odda

I love mashing eggs
I love real strong chrain
I love gefilte fish
I love this grape juice stain
I love this whole night
And all its craziness.

Boom dee odda, boom dee odda,
Boom dee odda, boom dee odda

I love leaning left
I love dipping twice
I love Machon Shilo
I'd love to eat some rice
I love this whole night
Thank God there's only one

Boom dee odda, boom dee odda,
Boom dee odda, boom dee odda
