The High Windows (Hebrew: HaHalonot HaGvohim) is an Israeli band, founded by Arik Einstein, Shmulik Kraus and Josey Katz. The band was active during the 1960s, released one album (self-titled) and a few more songs. The original name of the band was The Windows as a tribute to The Doors, but in the end the name was changed.
The band made pop music, which was very light, gentle, short and catchy. A few of their famous songs were Einech Yechola (You Can’t), Atur Mitzchech (Your forehead is crowned), Kol HaShavua Lach (The Whole Week for You), HaAhavot Sheli (My Loves), Yehezkel (Ezekiel), Chayal Shel Shocolad (Chocolate Soldier), Kama Naim (How Pleasant) and more. “Yehezkel” receized a lot of criticism, as it was seen as ireverent. The most famous song of the High Windows was Zemer Nuge (A Song of longing), a song written by Rachel Bluwstein. It was played by Ilan Ramon in space, and is one of the songs now associated with him. After two years of activity, in 1968, the group disbanded.
