Eden Ben Zaken - My Life



Mazal Tov to Israel's sweetheart Eden Ben Zaken! Eden burst into our lives 5 years ago with her memorable X-Factor audition (she later won second place) and became Israeli pop royalty with her debut album "Queen of Roses". Since then she's been busy releasing hit after hit and I'm sure this one will be a classic. The video, which is footage of Ben Zaken's recent wedding to longtime boyfriend Shuki Biton, is very emotional and also captures perfectly Israeli weddings today. L'chayim!

You came into my life before I gave up
You lit my heart with a sea of colors
After all the years in which I've been searching for happiness
All the years in which I've been searching for words

My love, look into my eyes
We won everything yet we remained sane
Promise always to take care of just us
To take care forever

Oh you're my life
How do I have you
I'm lucky to have you by my side
Oh you're my life
I'm shouting in front of everyone
For me you are the greatest happiness in the world

And how is it that with you every morning is such happiness
I wish time would stop forever
And how is it that you came for a moment
And stayed for eternity
A love for a lifetime

Oh you're my life
How do I have you
I'm so lucky to have you by my side
Oh you're my life
I'm shouting in front of everyone
For me you are the greatest happiness in the world

Erez Dascal - Titanic



Wow.


Once again I am swept into an adventure without arms and legs
And we pay for this nonsense later in blood
In blood!

Again
I am dressed like a captain
And I imagine myself sailing
This cursed ship
Towards the safe haven
And all of the sailors are disabled
And I have no ears and eyes
My throat is hoarse with stupidity
And there's nowhere to sail
Because the ocean
Is so wide open
And the wind is waiting
For an opportunity to give wings
To give a slap in the eyelids
And bring with me to justice
Again

Again I'm indifferent
To all the death around
And all the contempt and the soot
On the streets of Tel Aviv
It's giving me a heartburn
And why are you interfering?
Who gave you a license to drive
With me
Like a mule
Like pairs of shoes
In the markets of southern Tel Aviv

Again
I know I'm lost
This game is addicted
To its own failures
It's trying me out with force
It has no heart and has no mind
There's only the power of inertia
And gravity

Admit it, you're mostly lost in all this
Trying to find a sign for a solution
And another car of opportunity has passed
We missed the moment
With salt water from the sea
We brought a small bucket of sand to bury all the mistakes
And we pay for this nonsense each time in blood
In blood!

lust - Diamonds





Living on a boat
Living in a dream
Partying all night
In the smoke machine
And we don't care about the past
Cause we know it never gonna last

We're like diamonds in the night

When I feel low
You're my heroine
We paint the skies
And they can never understand
What we have between us
And we don't care about the past
Cause we know it never gonna last

We're like diamonds in the night

InAbell - Fresh Honey





near the northern rocks she planted roots
mud filled the the soles of her rubber boots
fresh was the air,
brown was her hair
back then

generations changed, the peaches grew
humble wishes partially came true
one rocking chair
one silent prayer
back then

Fresh honey from the bee hive
it used to be a good thing to be alive
Fresh honey from the bee hive
It used to be a good thing

I remember when she came to say
she's getting near her expiration day
white was her hair
down was the stare
back then

Fresh honey
from the bee hive
It used to be a good thing
to be alive
Fresh honey from the bee hive
it used to be a good thing

when the northern house was sold
she cried "I never planned for myself to grow so old.
I thought I'd finish my life here

Eifoshehu - Tel Aviv



"Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody"
-Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities

Imagine Tel Aviv is falling apart-it's already here.
Its buildings are falling, full and large and up to here
Kids are crying in the car again, because they don't have air-conditioner
A crane is breaking the Cinerama-they say it's old

The women of the city are sobering up in discotheques
Try to listen to the phenomenon-it's fascinating if
They just would have thought before they would have gone to a gay bar
Because half of the men behave like steaks

It's unpleasant, it's unpleasant, it's unpleasant, and it's also bad
My Tel Aviv is falling but I don't have the right to vote
When it will be conquered by the Romans or the transforming aliens
It won't be so awful, it won't be so bad
Because my Tel Aviv has already fallen

It's like an apocalyptic vision. They say in the elliptical room
Of our historical ally that there is no turning back
And they're racking their brains in the room "What did we do wrong?
How did we not keep, we didn't warn, the gray city"

And at the burial ceremony, there at the home estate
All of the leaders will come and wash their hands
But the dirt gets stuck tight, so they'll go in deep
Until the sea will wash them away and make a joke of everyone

It's unpleasant, it's unpleasant, it's unpleasant, and it's also bad
My Tel Aviv is falling but I don't have the right to vote
When it will be conquered by the Romans or the transforming aliens
It won't be so awful, it won't be so bad
Because my Tel Aviv has already fallen
