The Hasidic Jewish artist Chaim Shlomo Mayes is quite famous for his Hasidic covers and parodies of songs. For instance, he made a song called "Bas Kol" which is obviously a parody of "Worth It" by Fifth Harmony.

Here is the song. It's called "Shpigel", which means "mirror" in Yiddish. (Yes, I already know the translation of the lyrics, LOL.)

I don't listen to secular music; all my knowledge comes from being out and about - and I have never heard a song while out that sounds like this one.

  • I can't access to the video. It seems unavailable... can you check it, please? – Bebs Sep 20 '17 at 6:23
  • @Bebs - Yeah, the video works by me. Here's the link again: youtube.com/watch?v=6H7JBGb7V4c – ezra Sep 20 '17 at 15:57
  • I had trouble with the link too. you can listen to a sample on iTunes. SoundHound only recognises the song as itself, so not an obvious parody of something else, I'm guessing. You could maybe ask a question via his Twitter feed – Angst Sep 23 '17 at 13:59
  • @Angst - Um, I don't know what to say as far as the link goes. You can always just type the word "Shpigel" into YouTube and the song is the first result. – ezra Sep 24 '17 at 5:58
  • @ezra I tried too, but I had no relevant results... Don't forget that results may vary depending on the country. – Bebs Oct 4 '17 at 8:18

Yes, it is a cover/parody/translation of the song "Mirror" by Lil Wayne ft. Bruno Mars

He pretty much just translated all the words form the original song into Yiddish (unlike what he did with "Bas Kol")


YouTube video of Mirrors

It may be a bit uncomfortable to watch that video, here is a link for an audio-only video with lyrics.
