Songs From Natan Goshen and Idan Amedi [Videos]

The cornerstone of my Israeli musical tastes is the music of Idan Raichel, who draws on Israel's ethnic diversity as a source of his music. Some of his music is soulful and introspective, a bit like Arik Einstein as I remember him from the 1970's. The following song All I have is you תרגום לאנגליתwas put on YouTube with subtitles. The video after it is  Idan Imedi's "All I Have Is You."

 Idan Amedi רץ אל האור Running Towards the Light . Here is a partial English translation of the lyrics, as well as the video.

  Running towards the light Today, I came back into the room to look at the ceiling how is it compared to us? It's still quite clean. Because I wanted to forget, and throw it away, in another failed attempt, to become mr. nice guy (sweet). Here's one more wise guy, so he prefer to keep quiet. amongst all these jokers I so want to snap out and shout Evening falls again falls onto the street amongst thousands of beggars lost souls when the evening falls again I fall to the abyss I am a beggar now myself too seeking to go back when the darkness takes over me I run towards the light
