Those aren't an accurate translation of the original lyrics, yuneeq. The original lyrics include the line "I feel it in my body and feed it to the source", which seems to me to be referring to Wiccan earth-worship. (The earth being the source of all things - not god cha"v). You're also mistranslating the line "Mother earth live forever" which isn't in the version you showed him. (The live is missing)

Here is a remix of the real original song with the lyrics. (The ayayayayo is not part of the original song, that was added later.)



BTW, does your psek know Wicca? If he doesn't, he shouldn't pasken.
i donít believe itís that simple (that they actually worship the earth. Although there is focus on the five elements, but not necessarily as a diety...) although not taking away that Wicca is pure avoda Zara for other blatant reasons

Yuneeq, I was saying your translation was inaccurate. Do you have a posek who knows English? Furthermore, the Rambam paskens that there's no issur for a rav to learn the seforim of avoda zara since that knowledge is essential i paskeining whether it's muttar or not. (This is why many yidden fall into the trap of mattering all sorts of questionable a"z-based alternative health treatments, because they don't understand their origin and how it's based on worship, while Rav Belsky zt'l who was familiar with thier origin, assered them all.)

The one I trust most does not speak English. If you have a better translation I will try that.

He's a reputable dayan and posek, I trust him to be knowledgeable in this area and to know what he can and cannot do. Also, I didn't frame the question asking whether the original lyrics were A"Z or not. I asked on the basis that the original lyrics are A"Z, is this current iteration assur to listen to as well?

Also, it shouldn't have to be mentioned, this was my rov, and someone else might be able to explain the question better than me. Each person should rely on their own posek.

can one make a remix of just the hey-ya part and listen to that?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

What's worse? No music or acapella? I always have a hard time deciding and after listening to some acapella just now I feel like crying (maybe that's the intention?)
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

because half of the songs are tisha baav style songs or half of them are ripped parodies of hit songs from the radio?

After listening to some sefira albums, I feel a need to reiterate a rant I once had

*RANT ALERT*

I hate these people who produce a "Sefira CD" that has just a bunch of people singing, and charge $15 for it. Can it be justified to charge the same amount as an album that has full music (which is the most expensive part of the production)? And many of these albums sound horrible. There's a great one liner that sums it up: " Sefira albums are the only type of albums that a guy could wake up in the morning and decide to put one out, and have it completely finished before he goes to sleep. And from the way that many of them sound nowadays, it seems like that's exactly what happened!" Listen up producers: it takes more talent to put out a good acapella album then it takes to put out a good music album. On an acapella album, you can't hide behind the music. If you don't have the talent to create beautiful harmonies and whatever else you need to make a nice Sefira album, please turn over and go back to sleep. Thank you.

Lately I have seen some israeli artists removed from Google play. Including omer adam and ishay ribo. Is that because I overplayed them or was it actually removed?
