Gwen’s Got Cred

user submitted pictureWe dissed Gwen Stefani for looping the modern Jewish anthem “If I Were A Rich Man” into her thumpy dance club track “If I Were A Rich Girl,” thinking the guy who wrote the song would be twitching in his grave. Well, it turns out that not only is that guy still alive, he just loooves Gwen’s sample skills. In a story from last week’s Jpost, one of Fiddler On The Roof‘s original composers, Sheldon Harnick, age 80, says “The song’s fun, catchy, engaging, in good taste and we’re really pleased with it.”
We concede!
