Question: Shidduchim National Anthem?

Microphone

I was wondering, is there a song out there that encapsulates shidduchim? I know Blue Fringe has a shidduch song, but that doesn’t really do justice. Seriously, how many people do you know who get married in a week? That might make for a nice song, but in real life that would just be insane! I’m thinking there must be one song that can be coined the official “Shidduch National Anthem” or at least some song that describes shidduchim really well. Yeah, I know there are a lot of songs of heartbreak and romance, but how many nice songs are there about the process of finding someone? (Imho) My recommendation for the title would be Gotta Be Somebody, but my musical repertoire is a bit limited and perhaps there is a better tune that would be appropriate in its stead. Any suggestions?

  2. "The Shadchan" by Abie Rotenberg does a pretty decent job encapsulating the experience
