Jacqueline and the Arabized disco album!

In the late 70s and early 80s, many singers revived their careers or changed their styles to be disco divas - even the great Ethel Merman was not immune to that, releasing a disco album herself. In Lebanon, it was Jacqueline - the album had four songs on it: Sinorita Por Favor, Baddi 3ish (I Will Survive), Wayn Wayn Rayhin (One Way Ticket), and Anta Hobbi (Pauvres Diables).
I vaguely, very vaguely, recall Siniorita Por Favor, but then I could simply be imagining it. If anyone can help me hear these songs I would be very happy to know of such a tip (no, they are not on youtube as far as I know!).
