Anna in Portland (was Cairo)

Nancy may live in Lebanon but I think she at least until recently divided her time between there and Cairo, at least I know she had a dwelling in Cairo and spent a good amount of time there.

Nancy (or at least her publicists) made rather a big deal about how she stayed in Lebanon during the war, at least.

My son says that this song is an old Lebanese song that she re-made. Interesting anyhow.


Well I'm emotional these days, but I'm weeping. I can tell that it's sort of a banal song...because I understand the words, and she's pretty silly, but I'm still crying. This war broke our hearts. I cried through the film Bosta two nights ago, as well.


To clarify - I figure if I can understand the words to the song, then it's written to about a second grade level, and therefore the lyrics are not high-flown poetic ode. Furthermore the tune and orchestration are pretty standard. And I am sorry she has to deform her lips with silicone or whatever. But I'm still weeping.

does your son know who sang it before?


What a lame pathetic song.

She needs to take lessons from Fairuz or Julia Boutros.


Can anyone settle a debate for me? Is Nancy Ajram Egyptian or what?

No, she's very Lebanese as far as I know.


nancy is lebanese. if she keeps a flat in cairo, it's probably for when she's recording there.
