Should Barbra Streisand record a yiddish album?
What's your opinion.
Should the album be bilingual, with the songs sung in english
and yiddish, similar to what she did in her french album JE M'APPELLE
BARBRA.
What would be a good title for this album: " Jewish...Barbra Streisand". "Farbrent", "Call me bubale" " Yiddish songs" " The Yiddish album", " Best of yiddish songs",
What songs should she include?: " Mein yiddishe Mame", "Yankele",
"Bei mir bistu schon ( Barbra as a trio), " Yossel, Yossel".
" Vi iz dus gesele ( where is the village)", "Oyfen pripitchok",
" Margaritkelach", " Lomir sich iberbeiten", "Sunrise, sunset",
"yidl mitn Fidl" (could be a remastered duo with Molly Picon).
"Tumbalaika", " Vus geven is geven und nitu" "Eili, Eili" "chiribim, chiribom", "bublitchki",
Who should do the english lyrics, Marilyn and Alan , Stephen Sondheim,
Tim Rice, Paul Simon
Can'y wait for Barbra Streisand to record " The Yiddish Album"
