LATKES, ANGEL, MUSIC, BABY

Please explain this situation:

I seem to be listening to Gwen "Geltmeister" Stefani and rapper Eve singing a song called "Love Angel Music Baby", which recycles a riff from "If I Were a Rich Man," making it "If I Were a Rich Girl..."

I also seem to remember having heard a dance version of "If I Was a Rich Girl" at some clubs a few years back...

I'm just confused by the merging of Fiddler on the Roof and Gwen's Ska stylings. All explanations appreciated.

Ever since "Hey baby, hey baby, hey baby, hey baby, hey!" I've suspected that Gwen either suffers from Alzheimers, or has sold her soul. In either case, you can no longer expect qualities like "logic" or "depth" to figure into her work. The future outlook for Gwen calls for increasing shallowness, accompanied by sporadic stupidity.

Does the family of Isaac Bashevis Singer get royalties from Gwen's "cover?" Or is this going to go to court a la "My Sweet Lord" and "He's So Fine?"

Just wondering.

Yes, I'm sure I heard a dance version a few years ago, and I'm trying to find any info on it, because at the time, I noticed HATIKVA playing in the background, and thought, "that's really not cool". Now I can't find any evidence of it. help?
