    Default Your favourite Oum Kalthoum song

    Inspired by the Oum Kalthoum workshop by Mercedes Nieto I attended this weekend and the Umm Kalthum 7000 CD I bought over emusic last week, I figured it was time for an Oum Kalthoum thread...

    What is your current facourite Oum Kalthoum song? Why do you like it so much - the melody, the lyrics, the general feeling, the associations it brings? Does youtube have a video of OK singing it, or someone dancing to it? What do you know about the lyrics?

    Let's share our love for OK and educate each other at the same time!

    So, my newest favourite is Agadan Alkak - "Will I see you tomorrow?". I can't believe I haven't paid attention to this song before... At first I just enjoyed the melody, but I also like the emotion behind the lyrics - it is about the delightful and frightening yearning about meeting her love.

    Here's OK singing it (the 1st part, the song is divided into 6 clips on youtube)



    And here's Sohair Zaki dancing to it

    Ente Omri -- without question, it is my favorite Oum Kalthoum song, and one of my all time favorites regardless of genre. That said, I find it curiously hard to dance to. I have tried ones or twice (both to instrumental versions, of course) and failed.

    So, I have been working with Leylet Hob a fair amount recently. For some reason, it is easier for me to interpret -- although I have struggled with whether to "show" the truly emotions of the lyric with my dance. (The song has a bit of anguish in it -- as a friend said, "She is waiting for her love to arrive, and he is late. He has never missed an 'appointment' before . . .")

    Regards,

    Anala

    I can't choose just one, but Lissa Faker was my favorite Oum Kalthoum song for years.



    I also love Alf leila wa leila, Inta Omri, Leilet hob, Sirt el hob, Ana fi intizarak, El Hub Kollu, Al atlal and many others..
