    Yes, you are right. The recent stuff has been mostly garbage, there isn't even one song that I like from the recent stuff. In fact, I've stopped listening to all the new stuff after being dissapointed.

    I mostly listen to Khaleeji (Gulf music) but I also like others. I love Rai music, it's Algerian music. Although I don't understand 90% of what they say, the music is just magical.

    I also like few lebanese songs, but I don't like some of the beats, mostly what's called Jabali, like some of Najwa Karam's songs. But I like listening to Maya Nassr, Wael, Fathl Shaker and old Assi El Hellani.

    For some reason, I don't like the old egyptian songs, although they are classical and great. I don't listen to Oum Kalthoum, Fareed, Mohammed Abdel Wahab, but sometimes I tolerate Abdel Haleem

    Some of my favourite songs:

    Raheeb -- Abdel Majeed Abdallah
    El Messafer -- Rashed El Majed
    Tayyeb El Galb -- Abdel Majeed Abdallah
    Tamally Ma'ak -- Amr Diab
    Ya Rayeh -- Rachid Taha
    Ahebek Jeddan -- Assi El Hellani

    I will post more later as I remember some.

    Najwa's old songs were great, really nice. But for the past 4-5 years, she is just producing average stuff.

    I forgot to mention Ahmed El Jemairy, the Bahraini singer , he doesn't produce much, but I love his songs "Taw El Nahar" and "Shewayyekh" and Khaled El Sheikh as well, I love his old songs, Ainaki is a great song, and the lyrics are to some edgy. I remember him having to skip few parts when he sang it in Saudi

    No Ran, Haifa is a girl's name in arabic, quite famous.

    The city you are talking about is called Haifa as well, but the 'H' in it isn't pronounced like in english, but a different one. In arabic there are letters that aren't available in english, so they are substituted with an english equivalent.

    Just like in my name, the first letter is written H, but not pronounced so in arabic.

    Haifa is gonig to appear in a movie called Ali Baba, which is directed from hollywood and also stars Wael Kfroury (who i like) and Antonio Banderes(sp?)

    anyway, Hamed the music these days is shocking. u jsut wonder what happened.

    ill give u some songs i liked last year (mainstream stuff)

    Ah ya leil - i forgot his name dont know how i forgot that
    Songs from Tamer hosny
    Rashed El Majed had some great songs last year.
    Hakim had 1 good song.
    Amr diab to me is brilliant.
    But lately, i can barely watch arabic TV. Its just terrible music.

    Rotana, Mazzika, Nejoom. when will the good music come back?

    anyway, i like latifah's song - Ma Trosh Baid
    Marwa

    but liek Ziyad said, its terrible videos with terrible music, its all about some of these girls looks.

    Ah ya leil? You men her name, Sherina Ahmad, the dark egyptian singer, she is brilliant. The song was great, her vocals are great.

    Hakeem is also fine, his beat and style are good when you want to feel happy. My favourite songs of his are Salam alaiku and Efredh. I also like listening to Hisham Abbas, and I loved one song by a singer called Mohammed Mohyee, called Leeh Beyfakkarooni.

    And the video clips are a shame man, it's even worse than some of the wester ones on MTV. I don't know why they imitate them, do it in your own way

    Saber El Robaey has always been good.

    Do you like Fadl Shaker? i think his awsome in some songs.

    Yes, Fadl is good, specially when he sings Khaleeji. But also his shami songs are nice, Ya Ghayeb was really great I just liked one song of Saber's, Sidi Mansoor.

    Okay, do you have that letter in your alphabet by the way? I don't know how to describe it, but it's pronounced deep from the throat
