  Meir Ariel 
                  
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli songwriter and singer Meir Ariel, whose works became  
classics of modern Israeli music, died Sunday from an infection, a hospital  
spokeswoman said. He was 57.  

Ariel wrote the words to hundreds of songs, many of which entered the canon  
of pop and rock music in Hebrew, said Israeli Composers' Union chairman Yori  
ben-David.  

His songs were sung by Israeli greats such as David Broza, Shalom Hanoch, and  
Yehuda Poliker. About 10 years ago, Ariel began writing music and performing  
his works himself.  

Ariel arrived at Tel Aviv's Ichilov hospital on Friday in serious condition  
from an infection, spokeswoman Aviva Shemer said. He died from the infection,  
the cause of which is still unknown, she said.
