Shalom Chaverim

“Shalom Chaverim” is not, specifically, a Hanukkah song. However, it is apparently often heard at this time of the year. It’s a beautiful, traditional Hebrew folk song. The translation of the Hebrew text is basically: “Goodbye and be safe my friends. Until we meet again, have peace.”

I have given it a surf-rock instrumental setting that takes advantage of the fact that the song is also a canon/round.

Gone Gone Gone

We now resume our regular, non-holiday programming.

“Gone Gone Gone” was released in 1964. It never cracked the top-40. But If you can sit still while listening to this, you need medical attention.

Seriously, many younger music fans need to take some time to learn about Phil & Don. They were were brilliant.

The Ventures covered this tune on their 19665 album “The Ventures Knock Me out”.
