In YOEC the rule was that the composer and singer had to be Jewish and have a beard. Caused issues when Matisyahu came along  ;D
Not anymore :-)
Since it's sfira, how about all of AKA Pella's intros? I mean, they even went for the goyish intro when the Jewish one was better! (Eg, their version of Yesh Tikva - which btw someone told me that even Benny's original intro is taken from a goyishe song! can anyone confirm this? )

So that means Shwekey is out, but the following are in? It seems kind of arbitrary (just check out the videos yourself)

Funny, I thought the same thing


*One hook in Ashrei Ha’ish bears a striking resemblance to “Blurred Lines,” which I did not appreciate (not least because it made me and my crack team of goyish music researchers go find which song was tugging at my memory).

I heard a rumor that the classic Etz Chaim hi... tune has a conservative origin. Can anyone enlighten me if that's true?

Much of the modern orthodox davening is based on Louis Lewandowski

Did you know that the famous "Shalom Aleichem" song from Friday night that the whole world sings was composed by a reform rabbi?

Conservative Rabbi to be precise.
