No Anon 12:42, I know what anon 12:26 is getting at, which is why I didn't erase her (or his) comment this time around (which probably nobody else knew about except Anon 12:26 herself). She's not saying she personally thinks the song is innappropriate. She's asking why I don't think that if I want to be consistent.

Anon 12:26,

Because you started your question in a more open way, I'll start with a clarification that I saw no point in making on the earlier post. I actually never said that the music in "L'choh" or anything else was too goyish. What I had said was that to the singers/artists themselves, doing *actual* goyish music would have been "too goyish," which is why they were doing essentially the same thing, but with Jewish words; i.e., as a way of doing the kind of doing the kind of music they wanted to do without the "goyish feeling" they would have had by doing the same music with some secular words to the songs.

But your current question is about whether the "Na Nach" song, or any other "Jewish" song is "appropriate."

I have to go. I'll be back...

the 1st song on the video is from SimplyTsfat from their CD "Be Happy", not a bad album if I say so myself ;-)
