What’s what with the Souad Massi hype ba2a!!!

“Are you going to Souad Massi’s concert?”..this is becoming more like a greeting nowadays…walahi.  Whenever somebody calls or meets you…they just hit you with this question!!!

Well, the lady is good, she has a beautiful voice, and I would never open my mouth when it comes to her music…bas honestly speaking I can’t relate to her khales…the language is not smooth enough..I have hard time understanding her!!! and am not really into reading lyrics while driving-da if you consider it an option aslan-which is probably the only time I can listen properly to some good music.  Howa generally speaking what usually attracts me to a song is the lyrics…the tune is important..bas to me, if I can’t get the lyrics…then bye-bye oghneya!!

Fa to me Rima Khsheish and Lena Chamamyan for istance are super stimulating!! 7ad gheri bey7ebhom “I wonder!!”..the thing ba2a when I say this to anyone..they go like..”what??” “7ad y2ool keda”…and shoot along ba2a a “zoh2a we7esh awi” kinda look (you can easily figure a contemptuous look over the! 😉 

which is ok..I don’t mind people’ s looks anywayz…bas el fekra eno..I really wonder if it is only me..wala there are other people on this planet who really can’t relate to Souad Massi!!

On another note ba2a: A Thousand Splendid Suns is the kind of book that would leave the reader with a faint miasma of disappointment…to be fair, Khaled Hosseini is an awesome story teller if I may say, his way of narration is flawless.. he skillfully entiwnes the characters and events. However, this novel can not be compared to the Kite Runner…still am not done yet..bas about to, but not totally taken.

  1. Unfortunately… I SUPER RELATE TO SOUAD!! I mean I had a post on facebook *whatever!!*, where I asked my friends what song reminds them of me and the only thing that came up more than twice was Souad… You are absolutely right.. the lyrics are barely arabic. It took me years too take them all in, but all the violins, ouds guitars were stimulating till I could actually make out LYRICS! Rima is amazing, never heard of Lena though.. and after all music is a matter of taste, and yes.. it is very irritating when something comes up fag2a and everyone’s talking about it keda all the time!!

  2. Bossi, It is not like I hate her aw 7aga bel3aks, I listen to her kteer, bas she is not one of my favourites 😀 tayeb will send you something for Lena keda via email..and if you liked her will send you the rest of the album 😀
