“Like many listeners, I’m sure, I would cry when I’d listen to Moshe Yess’s iconic ‘My Zaidy,’ ” says 8th Day composer Shmueli Marcus. This classic song, which paints a picture of the warmth of the old country and the pain of its loss, inspired Marcus’s own song “Babinyu,” which was released on the Brooklyn album in 2007. “To me, if there was a zeidy in the old country making us laugh and sing, then there definitely was a bubby who was busy creating the home environment where Zaidy’s story could unfold,” he says.
