It has happened far too often, that I have danced at weddings, bar mitzvahs, and other celebrations and have found myself not knowing the words of the song that is being played by the band. Nevertheless, in the spirit of the simcha, I continue dancing and muttering random sounds that seem to somewhat flow well with music.
After discussing the matter with a few of my friends they too have confessed that they often find themselves in this same situation.
My good friend CR has answered our silent outcry and has set out on a mission to correct this problem. He has constructed a blog that methodically goes song by song, writing out the words of the songs and their translations. He then follows with a beautiful anecdote that explains and adds meaning to the words of each song.
I very much encourage that everyone check out his blog. Not only will it enrich your simcha but it will also bring more meaning to the songs (www.knowthewords.blogspot.com).
Kol HaKavod CR! And I anxiously await your every post.
