I love Ragheb Alameh, I’m a big fan of his old songs mainly and the guy is still one of the best performers in the country but I think he should stay away from politics. His latest song ” Tar el Balad ” makes him look as if he was living in a bubble and he just realized we’re in deep shit. Obviously, that doesn’t entitle anyone and more specifically an elected MP, to bash him and ask for his head, but it’s still a rather lousy timing to come up with such a song, especially when you’re performing at every politician’s son’s or daughter’s wedding.
Everyone loves you for being the “super star” with the kick-ass songs. Don’t ruin that image 🙂
Your comment on Ragheb’s song is unfair. You have at least one or two posts per week complaining about the socio-politico-economic situation in the country and you criticize a singer for coming out with a song that may have more impact than any of your posts. You say that he just realized the country is in deep s***t. Do you realize how much time it takes to produce a song? Certainly more than it takes to write a post on a cough at night criticizing a Lebanese star. I do appreciate many of your posts but this one is provocative…
