Yedidi HaShachahta Maqam Bayat - ידידי השכחת מקאם ביאת

Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi was known for his beautiful poetry and Yedidi HaShachahta takes the cake. This song is sung by Sepharadim around the world, no matter the background. I will argue that its tune became famous after Jo Amar z''l put it on a track. It became an instant hit in Israel.
The song has a beautiful Spanish twist to it and like many other Spanish melodies, the makam Bayat or Sika (spaniol).
