A.K.A. PELLA

I was passing a car stopped at a red light. The windows were rolled down on this SUV, and Jewish music was blasting from its black exterior. I noticed a Jew in the front seat (seems obvious). Then I thought "hey its sefira he shouldn't be playing that". I could have thought he holds of the second half, but instead I didn't. I tried to think of how this could tie into a post; why is he breaking sefira with Jewish music? if you really were going that far, listen to non-Jewish, or worse Lipa (you don't hear them banning non-Jewish concerts).

After a while (or 3 hours), I was in my friends car blasting music down the road, to one of the A.K.A PELLA CDs. Then I understood what that first guy was listening to, and dropped the post. I must admit they do a great job with their music, it sounds really good, and perfect for sefirah. They have some of your favorite knock offs, Lecha was done well. Its a Sefira CD for people who don't like Sefira, so go and buy it.

Y-Love has a great idea for sefira music. And, if you play this loud, it would freak out your neighbors. :-D

@ookamikun @RobynRSTAR I don't know why... but I find Arabic #nasheed music like ideal for writing code, esp. this song http://is.gd/tYRW

some people listen to taped music during sefira. I don't think the laws are as stringent as during the three weeks, or aveilus.

I think that rule of non live music was made up.
