New Song "Green Hills"

Well, I INDEED forgot to mention the new Song here on my own homepage out of all pages on the web. Is this still excusable? Well I think so, because I am only accountable to my self. And I think this is completely ok. And, hey: Better late than never, eh? And here it is: My latest song. Again it is somthing "reggaelike". Some folks allready said in forums or via mail, that this is indeed real Reggae. But, folks, I don't fall for that anymore. How often people told me that a song of mine was real Reggae, and then when I called it Reggae myself in forums etc., the result was the old and very well known "this is not really Reggae". ;) And know what? I don't really care if it is actually Reggae or not. It is my music, which you like or don't like. So all what's left for me is to hope that you like this new song. And if not? Well, dammit, that's how life goes :D

But now after all those words, let the music speak for itself:

New song release: Hava Nagila

My latest song is an old jewish Klezmer (Folk) song I wanted to cover for quite a looong time. Last week I finally had an idea how to do it in a new style. And the result is a reggaelike track again.Strangely after I had the basic melody done, it was less work than expected. The ideas were there right when I needed them. I would say, I did this track in less then a tenth of the time I usually spend on producing a song. Still it is, as I think, one of the best mixed and arranged productions I ever did. I think I must do more jewish folk music. In fact I have allready some songs of that kind on my list. But on the other hand, I have at least an album of other songs which need just some polishing to be ready for release. We'll see... For now have fun with "Hava Nagila":
