Playlist November 6-12

A very mixed bag this week. In fact, if you've been following my playlists over the past few months (and I suspect most of you haven't), I dare any of you to define my musical tastes.
  1. مروان خوري - كل القصايد: If you are not moved by this beautiful song, then you are an evil heartless robot and must be destroyed!
  2. Alphabetical - Phoenix: A rarity in music; a very cool French band from the land where tacky Vegas-style singers pass for serious musicians (see Johnny Halliday, Dalida et al.)
  3. Hush - LL Cool J: All hip-hop should be this sunny, bouncy and fun. Great for playing in the car too.
  4. محمد عبدو: A selection of his classics that I copied onto the old iPod. The man is a living legend. It's amazing how the planet's most repressed nation can produce such artistry.
  5. Little Girl Blue - Janis Joplin: The rock legend cut down in her prime by a heroin overdose in 1970. This is her beautiful rendition of an old Nina Simone song.

And of course, the week wouldn't be complete without a celebration of last week's US election victory for George W. Bush, Green Day's American Idiot is the song I've chosen. Again!

  4. Well I'd say you're kinda' sorta' more into old-school punk rock (which i personally hate haha ). Mohammed Abdu (I think I just died a little inside when I typed his name in english) counts as old-school as well. I dunno where LL Cool J came from though :P

    Zaydoun please don't be fooled by Purg, who in reality is a robot who doesn't have any real feelings or emotions. He's just programmed to act this way.

  5. Zaydoun, finally a song on your playlist that I like. Hush by LL Cool J is a pretty good song, he's been in the music scene for a while and is still going strong and so is your blogs, keep it up. One song that I recommend to you is Charlene by Anthony Hamilton and another one is Why by Jadakiss, listen to the lyrics on "Why" by Jadakiss, I think you'll like it. Keep it up Zaydoun.
