10/08/2015"Titina" Live In Fürth

In March 2014 the Jewish Monkeys were invited to play the International Klezmer Festival in the quaint North Bavarian town of Fürth. Once on stage they also performed one of their favourite non-album tracks "Titina", an upbeat tune taken from the Charlie Chaplin movie "Modern Times" and underlaid with an old Yiddish song. Adding their very own touch of punk to the mix, this rendition sure got the crowd going and chiming in with the "daidaidaidaidai" chorus. In case you were wondering, the song is about a "Chussenbucher", a 50-year-old bridal candidate, still looking for a bride. Luckily there's a live recording up online for us all to relive the experience.
