"Mestaniak" (Live) from Ebtada el Meshwar **MUST WATCH**

This is, in my opinion, Nancy's greatest live performance ever. She is not only incredible beautiful and gives off an awe-inspiring stage presence, but her voice is at its peak here. This performance is from a popular music television show in Lebanon. "Mestaniak" is a song about longing and missing a lover. This is definitely a must-watch for all Nancy fans and anyone interested in Arabic music!

@cityofkyle she is beautiful! And what a lovely voice. I can see why you called this her best live performance!
Hey I just read Nancy Ajram is a world music award winner! Definitely adding this to my collection! =D she definitely deserves the award
This was such a lovely performance! I love the sounds of the live instruments and the enthusiasm of the audience--the songs she sung must be popular Arabic songs!

The Soundtrack to Life New Playlist Challenge!!!
The time has come my dear friends for another Playlist challenge but before we get into that I want to thank my lil sis @jiggzy19 for challenging us all to look outside of K-Pop for our last challenge, it was a lot of fun, and actually the most popular challenge we have done so far ^^ Okay now to the matter at hand, this time our challenge comes from @PassTheSuga, and it was seconded by @aabxo !!! its a pretty easy one this time guys, unless you're like me and are going to have trouble narrowing the immense list of songs down to fit on a card... XD the playlist theme this time is.... SUMMERTIME!!! (Or if you live in the southern hemisphere like me, the theme is "I Wish it was SUMMERTIME!!!") 1. You create a playlist according to the given theme. 2. You can use any Asian music you like, doesn't just have to be K-Pop, but it must be relevant. 3. You can basically add as many songs as you like, (has to be more than 2) the normal amount is about 10 songs. 4. Remember to tag me (@MattK95) in you card so that I will definitely see it and clip it to "The Soundtrack to Life" collection, and tag the person who came up with the playlist theme, in this case (@PassTheSuga & @aabxo) that will change with every playlist theme though! 5. Be as creative as you wish, and have fun!!!!! \(^O^)/ here are some random yet awesome examples :) sherrysahar's non K-Pop playlist kpopandkimchi's no K-Pop playlist jiggzy19's minus the K-Pop playlist stevieq's non K-Pop playlist @aabxo @DancingPartyTme @PassTheSuga @kpopandkimchi @sherrysahar @snowinseoul @poojas @KpopJunkiesTV @chandnip804 @xoxoaudra98 @nielswife @TaehyungKey @LydiaPark14 @christy @SivegechHeang @harmonico @Allyphernelia @shashae5296 @jroffen @YeseniaLira @chelsiec25 @jimberlykemp @TheKS3D @StarBabes @SamanthaDuron15 @XiaoKaiTien @B1A4BTS5ever @Uniangel18 @kimjongdaily @ChesterH @Igot7BTS @StephanieDuong @stevieq @DannyNeders @KpopGaby @bts486 @sanazssanaz @LmJSuper @netchtiBates @danidee @blackkatt2345 @whissy44 @lollipopdollie @heirress @GraceDowns97 @SunnyV @deemonster100 @JackieMurrayCab @Dahliadang @kimikodragon @MayraGrijalva @casiegarza0330 @Rhia @erlindafishy @hamxerh @WiviDemol @LinnyOk @rem191997 @happyface1497 @SakuraBlossom96 @AmberMaze @sosm @adikiller @nieva28461 @Ambie @SashaLove @divalycious @callmekaren @Aero2042 @jiggzy19 @MinionPeach17 @nenegrint14 @Cryomorph @chasinghapiness @Miss148 @NanaSomon @alwaysdream @jpandajackie @honeysoo @OctaviaHawkins @panopticlove @shannonl5 @cindystran @MichiGo4L @veselovskayavic @kpopgirly101 @kkkc @DocLee @KDramaKpop1015 @MirandaTuan @AraceliJiminez @MimiKawaiiGirl @MercyJackson @AnnaNaumova @Eesis @cheesm @chrissy @KpopGirl17 Ok so if we forgot to tag you I am so sorry, me and jiggzy just tagged everyone we could think of, so if we missed you and you would like to be tagged next time let us know in the comment section :) Also don't forget that you aren't obligated to do this whether we tagged you or not, if you are interested in doing this I hope you have fun!!!

My Asian Pop Playlist (minus the K-pop) (jiggzy19) part 2/2!!!!!
Hi!!! Ok so this is the second half of my "Asian Pop Playlist" if you haven't seen the first part you can check it out here....if you want to! ^^ Alright lets get started!!! GJ - Want to Say This song is from the Taiwanese drama "Murphy's Law of Love." I totally recommend this to all drama fans. I normally only watch K-dramas, but this one has been so refreshing! I'm enjoying it so freakin much!!! You can watch it HD and subbed on DramaCool Bii - I'm Still Missing You As I have mentioned in my previous card, I totally love this guys voice!!! <3 Isaac 365 - LỖI ĐỊNH MỆNH (Ngày Nảy Ngày Nay OST) I might have a slight obsession with V-Pop, Isaac is one of the reasons why lol :P His voice in this song is totally DAE to the BAK!!! Will 365 - Sexy Lady One of the other reasons I love V-Pop is this guy, this song is so FUN!!! I recommend it for all your dance parties \(^O^)/ (a.k.a me in the garage with Matty XD @MattK95 !) MIN from ST.319 - Lost (Feat. MR.A) Yes this is more V-Pop, I love it okay... No judging ^-^ This song is totally catchy, I had to beg @MattK95 to not use this on his playlist, so that I could use it, thanks for not using it Matty *\(^-^)/* <3... why was I begging... I found this song first... (O_O#) Della Wu - Palm (Warrior Lan Ling OST) LOVE this!!! Does anyone want to walk in wherever the hell it is that she is walking, wearing that pink dress thingy with cherry blossoms raining down around you??? \(0.0) [Alexandros] - Famous Day I am a fan of these guys :D They have a completely unique sound, and the encouraging messages they use in their lyrics sometimes!!! Da Mouth - Funky (Feat. Pauline Lan) FUNKY~~~! I don't know if you know this or not, but rollerskating is actually not a simple task... (I'm not talking about rollerblading here) So shout out to the girl in this for making it look so easy and awesome! The older lady in this seems a little bit like the Asian Madonna XD Still a great song though^^ I added the dance version incase anyone wants to learn it, cause it's actually awesome, and not as easy as it looks... Yes, I have tried it :3 Da Mouth - Loser Despite what you might be thinking this was actually filmed this year... They just wanted to make it look like it was from way back when lol Hello legwarmers!!! lol. actually my Mom was wearing a pair when she first met my Dad, she was doing the dishes, cute right?! XD I feel I should also mention that their new album is called "Back to the Future" which is the reason both this song and "Funky" have such an older feel to them :) I still completely love it though ^^ Isaac - Mr. Right This MV just came out yesterday, and because you can never have enough Isaac in your life, I thought I'd share it... You can tell by now I'm a fangirl over him can't you... anyway... this song makes me want to put glitter on speakers, and dance around. Pretty simple dance, or at least it sort of has an "I'm too cool to waste a lot of energy on this" feel to it, but I still havent mastered it yet... I can assure you that I will though ^^ Hey Matty I know you are jealous that I got to add this to my playlist... you should have waited for it to come out lol... in your face! (Sisterly love XD) but seriously sucked in :P Credit to the owners of all these MVs and Photos. (I DO NOT own any of these MVs or photos!) Thanks for reading and listening Bye Bye Chu~ XOXO
The 10 Best Arab Films
Fifty years of movie magic, from Tunisia to Iraq, as chosen by Omar al-Qattan, film-maker and chair of Shubbak – A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture. 1. The Night (Al-Lail) Mohammad Malas, 1993 A great Syrian film. It is about the director's home town of Quneitra, on the borders of the Golan Heights, which was almost completely destroyed by the Israelis after the 1967 war and remains in ruins. 2. The Mummy (Al-Mummia), aka The Night of Counting the Years Shadi Abdel Salam, 1969 Set in Egypt at the end of the 19th century, it tells of a peasant family living off the illegal trade in pharaonic treasures. 3. Watch out for ZouZou (Khally ballak min ZouZou) Hassan Al Imam, 1972 It is a comedy of class conflict – Zouzou (Soad Hosny) comes from Cairo's popular quarters but is attending the liberal world of university. 4. The Cruel Sea (Bas-Ya-Bahar) Khalid Al Siddiq, 1972 Shot in black and white, it evokes the pre-oil days when Kuwait relied almost entirely on the sea, either for trade or for pearl-fishing. 5. Fertile Memory (Al Dhakira al Khasba) Michel Khleifi, 1980 Fertile Memory is a portrait of two women: one a radical young Palestinian novelist, a divorcée, living with her daughters in the Occupied Territories; the other Khleifi's illiterate aunt, who lost her husband just after the 1948 war. 6. The Dupes (Al-makhdu'un) Tewfik Saleh, 1973 Set in Iraq, shot in Syria, based on a famous Palestinian novel by Ghassan Kanafani (assassinated by the Israelis in 1972) and directed by an Egyptian, this harrowing film is about a group of Palestinian workmen in the early 50s trying to cross the border illegally from Iraq into Kuwait, to join the oil boom. 7. Man of Ashes (Rih Essed) Nouri Bouzid, 1986 This powerful film about working-class boys growing up in Tunisia caused a stir because it deals with sexual harassment and homosexuality. 8. The Call of the Nightingale (Doa al-Karawan), aka The Nightingale's Prayer Henry Barakat, 1960 The heroine, a peasant girl, decides to take revenge on a handsome engineer who has seduced her sister and caused her "honour" killing by her uncle. 9. 12 Angry Lebanese Zeina Daccache, 2009 The film was partly an attempt to reform the country's criminal and penal laws and improve prison living conditions. 10. Chitchat on the Nile (Thartharah fawq al-Nil) aka Adrift on the Nile Hussein Kamal, 1971 Based on a novel by Naguib Mahfouz, this film's theme is decadence. It is set on an illicit barge on the Nile where disenchanted government employees meet to get drunk and smoke hashish.
