- Fairuz (March 30) - مش قصة هاي: Fairuz in "dissing" mode. I love the جلسة mood of this song.
- Jamiroquai (April 13) - 7 Days in Sunny June: Yes I recommended it last summer, but damn it's so good.
- Robbie Williams (April 21) - Kids: Robbie & Kylie, a match made in pop-trash heaven!
- Jennifer Lopez (April 27) - Waiting for Tonight: Never liked her songs much, and this is the least offensive of her hits.
Meanwhile in Kuwait.... all hell broke loose over a PRIVATE party last weekend that featured Ragheb Alameh, Majda Al-Roumi (yawn!), and drag comedian Bassem Fghali, with lots of (gasp!) alcohol and (shock! horror!) dancing. On Monday, the indignant Al-Watan huffed its disapproval like an old spinster aunt in a mean-spirited article, describing the event as حــفــل مــاجــن and calling for "heads to roll" at the Ministry of Interior for allowing such degenerate behavior to tarnish our otherwise pure and innocent country.
They didn't post the article on their website, no doubt aware that bloggers would have a field day with it, both for and against, and I strongly urge the artists to sue Al-Watan for publishing their pictures with that offensive article!!
