(translation)

You are what you are
And I am what I am
Be yourself
And let me be me
Each of us and their world
Living their lives
You are free
Until your freedom limits me
You are what you are
And I am what I am
Be yourself
And let me be me
You are what you are (be yourself)
And I am what I am (I'll be me)
Be yourself (be yourself)
And let me be me (I'll be me)
Stop judging me
And trying to change me
I would be doing really well
If you only stop limiting me
Keep it in mind
We are all born free
We are both just human beings
Who want to exist

If it's in Hebrew should the music be backwards too?
If this interests you please go to the real deal superior product:start with Oum Kalthoun and Shadia from Egypt and Fairouz from Lebanon.

Unfortunately I did not listen to any radio while I lived in Israel for two years....I did learn A LOT about Robbie Williams though on VH1..they also had this channel called "Fashion TV" which was basically non stop runway models on the catwalk-----often nude!!  This was Euro programming, you see...
 
Wait, I don't get it. How are they selling any fashion if the models are naked? "Look at the lovely retro-60s-cut miniskirt that the model isn't wearing. It would be the height of fashion, just jaw-dropping if, of course, she were wearing it." Or is this like Emperor's New Fashion Line week?
I hear the desire for freedom from repression for women. So well said. Power to her!
Middle East music is sultry...love it!

You mean you don't like Tarkan? Not even "Kiss Kiss"? {#Roflol}  
The lyrics are great.

Not good, not bad. Slick, clinical, digital production...
Sounds great!
Ich finds auch klasse!

World Music = Eclectic
Thank you google translate + image search...

Sorry, much like the Afro-pop, this does not do much for me at all. 
This completely sucks.
Why?

Why do they torture with something like that so often ??



 


dunno  {#Stupid}   still trying to figure out the inexplicable plethora of natalie merchant
this song is just bad......in any language  
Does anybody know any background on this song?  The lyrics read as angry, but certainly not irrational so.  Who is she angry at?  Whose freedom is limiting hers?
Sorry all you haters...I really like the ethnic, authentic outer worldly sound. Appealing.

Eclectic is what RP does best!

By the way, the -Chel is pronounced throaty like Bach in German, not a Ch like Charlie.

What comments are you referring to?
Middle eastern music really brings out the xenophobes.
Here's to Miss America 2014!

F*K you haters!
Jeez, I'm all for eclectic, but I mean, c'mon......this is.....no.
There's some other song by The Idan Raichel Project that I really hate that occasionally crops up on RP, but this is pretty great.
MMMMn yes.
Not my cup of tea, but it's -out of the box- thinking Bill! 6 points of the Dutch jury

I thought this was Azam Ali at first as the language sounds like Persian. Attention-grabbing, and again kudos to RP for finding good music outside of the anglo-saxon world. 8 from the entranced Nottingham jury.

 
Agree completely! Beautiful! Thank you, RP, for being so refreshing and interesting.

I echo Karmala's comment. The next few tracks you played were really dreary by comparison. I am also very thankful for PSD. Happy to have this one on my preferred playlist. Does Natacha Atlas ever come up on your radar Bill?
What are the lyrics?
Don't appear to be available currently.
Experiments like this make me so thankful for PSD.
Refreshing! Thanks, Bill.
