Lebanon's history via pop culture 23

Amigo Hekmat Wehbe? Houwayda? The Bandalis – as a family and one on one? I remember my cousin playing “sa2alti kol msafer” by Mona Mer3achli (I asked every traveler) when her fiancé immigrated to the United States. Naturally, things got complicated when he came back to find she was with someone else. And her sister? Well, she was more of George Micheal’s “Careless whispers” crying-till-you-dry-out kind. Soundracks of our lives, always and forever in melody. Suzannah, am crazy loving you…
