Some of my favorite songs are the English-language ones that have made it onto the Jewish albums over the last few decades. These songs often have messages that speak right to our souls. This English song genre actually began about 50 years ago with color war songs from different camps. They were all Jewish tunes to which counselors wrote original lyrics: theme songs, marching songs, and alma maters — most of them had the same message and a lot of the same rhymes. I used to count how many times you could rhyme tears with fears, cry with why, and bimheirah beyameinu with Mashiach Tzidkeinu.
