Yiddish Part ll

This article claims that Yiddish as a language, is making a come back ( at least in the academic sense). Does that mean in 10 Yrs. from now we'll be hearing more Yiddish tunes on recordings. Remember all the Yiddish songs that MBD & Fried etc. used to sing? They then opted for original Hebrew songs. Lately a lot of recording artists are even moving away from English songs on their albums. Why is that? Well I think it's because a) Not too many people can write one b) They usually aren't too popular so why not put in a song that might "make it" .
