Song Requests

Tonight the band got a request for "Kol Sasson". It took a while to figure out which song the kid who requested it meant. He wanted to hear M'heira by Ya'akov Shwekey. The high part of the song begins with the words "kol sasson."

Incidentally, that high part makes a lot of folks think of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On."

Very often, people come over to the band to request songs w/o knowing the song's title. This frequently makes for some laughs on the bandstand.

Best request in this vein ever, "Shifty Whoo", by someone who wanted to hear an older version of Achas Shoalti that was popular in their summer camp.
