i like it but benny is my uncle so i like his songs the way they are

#35 #49

#35 you are 100% correct, and I wish and pray that people like #49 will open there eyes and see how low they are going, America is not diffrent, we have to remember that as yidden we stand and have to remain standing higher then the rest of the world…

first was waayyy nicer!

“when a yid thinks that the outside world is greater than himself”

whats wrong with regular music? why this stuff? just becuase the goyim do it doesnt mean we have to..

very very nice Yosher Koach

Why is it called no lyrics is it because most of the song doesn’t have lyrics or is it because the lyrics of the song is “No Lyrics Nigun” (at 3:19 in this video)?

NO lyrics ;)
July 27, 2010 9:47 pm

uhhhhh its supposed to have noooo lyrics! Hence the title… C’mon it was awesome as it was I looooooved the song why add anything??

did benny friedman agree 2 this??????
July 27, 2010 4:02 pm
well done
July 27, 2010 6:19 am

great remix
and to all of you criticizers: rap is a style of music: either u like it or not
chassidic music was always influenced by the non jewish music of that era. that’s a fact

July 26, 2010 10:16 pm

All brad was doing is try to have some fun with a little twist….stop with the rude comments what the heck!!!

July 26, 2010 10:06 pm

Rap is vulgar. Just plain vulgar and unnecessary. So sad to see the influence seeping in, sweeping up.

July 26, 2010 7:56 pm

awesome! thanks loved this song particulalry on the album and now i love it that much more.

and isnt it great that something like benny friedman makes me listen to less non jewish music! 🙂

i agree
July 26, 2010 7:48 pm

i agree with 42 and 59 and think that a lot of the comments here are much more destructive than the song…mesiris nefesh of the tzaddikim was to go out of their way to find the good in other jews, not to be so quick to criticise…don’t forget, you are talking about a fellow jew when you post hateful things…

i agree
July 26, 2010 6:32 pm

i agree with 42

To 49.. I have one…. Do You??? Do you think this is what the Rebbim had in mind?ALL 7 Rebbim? open a Tanya ..a Lekutei Torah.. a Sicha Is this what the Rebbim had mesirs Nefesh for? So you can rap reggae and rock and roll to zomah lechoh Nafshi?????!!!!!!!

Good job
July 26, 2010 3:00 pm

nice…but I think you should get it remixed with some better sound

Maybe they can sing this in the subway, and go around with a hat. I think they will make lots of $$$.

July 26, 2010 11:00 am

i loved the real song but this…!!!

wasted words
July 26, 2010 9:25 am

why do people insist on having the same endless debate? its the substance not the style people. the music we think sounds so Jewish, is just what all European music sounded like 150 years ago. You think 800 years ago Jewish music didn’t sound like the same music that was popular in the world at the time? music is an expression of the soul. I feel like my own words are wasted too because in a month col will post some other video of someone else doing something not “jewish” and we’ll have the same endless debate. and again, to… Read more »

seriously get a life!!!

this is a joke, right??
July 26, 2010 4:58 am

i’m embarressed. i wanna cry
never mind the fact that it is an absolutely shocking failure of an attempt to rap, i just cannot believe this is where Jewish music is at. i totally agree with 36
why are we trying so hard to be like everyone else?????

NO lyrics please!!!!
July 26, 2010 4:48 am

it was so much nicer b4

July 26, 2010 3:45 am

hello since when thats so not true

July 26, 2010 2:43 am

the lyrics smell of arrogance! get over urself benny…..

barely legal
July 26, 2010 1:54 am

the religious/orthodox lawyer who want to be (or already is?) a rapper…classic.

good stuff brad…ignore the hate. and just ask yourself W.W.V.D?

July 26, 2010 1:50 am

wow this is amazing stuff!! do you have a cd? whens the next song coming out?

refreshing music
July 26, 2010 1:48 am

1. why would you say “he’s messing up the song” when the original is still there!….you dont like this one? then dont listen to it!

2: He is not trying to be mattisyahu or nosson zand…this is an original idea and personally i think the lyrics are great.

3: this man is NOT trying to bring this into lubavitch and be “mechanech dem kinder” he’s an artist expressing himself, and collive decided to put it on their website.


Bentzy Marcus is the man!
July 26, 2010 1:26 am

Move Aside Benny, 8th Day will always be the one and only single most best Jewish Band of all time.

July 26, 2010 12:14 am
no lyrics
July 26, 2010 12:03 am

there’s a reason its called no lyrics. and generally im sure most benny fans are not into rap. so why mess up a good song?

July 25, 2010 11:23 pm

love it good job!!!!!!!!

this sucks
July 25, 2010 11:01 pm

both the original and this one are so annoying whatever happened to good old fashioned songs that have a Jewish sound

Nice try,but no lyrics.Havnt anyone heard of Irving Berlin,from Israel,George and Ira Gershwin.Eddie Cantor,Tin Pan Alley in the 20s,Are monsters today in 2010.These Lyricist make more money now,then the 20th Century.Charles,harry,henry,Fred Tobias inducted into ASCAP,Songwriters hall of fame.Music is all about Lyrics, today ,since the Early 1900s,that were only successful.Who cares about Rappers,unless your rapping Teffillin,on Jews.Its a good idea,to expand your knowledge,and understand the Great Songwriters,of the last 100 years.Im sorry,but music today,is Dead,unless you are a Prolific Lyricist.Dont close your minds to the greats,of the 20th century,great Jewish Songwriters.

July 25, 2010 9:13 pm

im not sure some people understand that benny isnt the one rapping …. so why there are “go benny!”‘s and “benny follow your uncle” is kinda confusing since benny didnt MAKE THIS RAP SONG.

July 25, 2010 6:04 pm
July 25, 2010 6:02 pm

The rap completes the song! The lyrics are meaningful and the addition of the choir makes it anthem material. Where has Brad Wallace been hiding?
