Amr Diab

January 4, 2011

You know how there’s music you hated as a kid because it was on all the time but now seems endlessly fascinating? Amr Diab’s like that for me. You couldn’t escape him in the Middle East in the 90s. I told a kid we used to play football against that his Amr Diab football jersey was stupid and he punched me. I love Amr Diab now. This song, ahhh. It’s the standard “darling, it’s your own damn fault I can’t be with you, you broke my heart, now go away and leave me in peace” song but it’s also something so much more.
