Songs About Jerusalem
I spent ten whole days in Jerusalem
Mmmm Jerusalem, sweet Jerusalem
And all I ate was olives
Nothing but olives
Mountains of olives
It was a good ten days I like olives I like you too.
And you WILL like this song.
Psalm 137 never sounded so good.
Various – Jerusalem of Gold (Yerushalayim shel Zahav)
This 1967 classic written by Naomi Shermer is…classic. So classic and amazing that everyone has tried their hand at covering this one. From Phish to Klaus Maine of Scorpions to Ofra Haza. Listen to them all and see which is your favorite version. Or even better yet, sing your own version!
