Wake up my nation


I've taken some photos randomly the other day, when I had a look of them on my PC I instatnly thought of this song.

The first time I heard it in 2002 performed by Asalah live on TV, and I recenlty I found out that It was performed by a male singer called Emad Rami in 2006.

The song by Asalah was written by Abdulrahman Al Abanodi, composed and arranged by Jamal Salama...I guess it was the same for the male singer although some parts of the lyrics and the music arrangment is different.

I like the chorus in Asalah's version, the way they repeat everything as Asalah's echo.

Below you can find Asalah's version then Emad's


Song name: Istaiqithi Ya Ommati (Wake up my nation) إستيقظي يا أمتي
Album: Unreleased song performed live on TV in 2002
Singer: Asalah - Assala - Assalah - أصالة
Lyrics by: Abdulrahman Al Abanoodi - عبدالرحمن الأبنودي

أصالة - Asalah

Wake up my nation before you torn apart
Before you are lost a lone in the darkness of the time/destiny

Look around you...
All people are united except me...
All efforts intisified except me...
I am the one who is suffering...
I am the one who is miserable...
Wake up my nation

Our "grand parents" (ancestors) made life...
And they "inspired" (spread) the world with "light" (science)...
Sigh
We are sleeping while our enimies are monitoring us...Conspiring and lurking...
We are sleeping while our enimies are monitoring us...Thinking...Planning and executing

We always says "we used to be..."
My nation...We want to be

Dear God, comply to us
And my nation, WAKE UP


إستيقظي يا أمتي من قبل أن تتمزقي
من قبل أن تتشتتي في غربة الزمن الشقي

فلنتظري...
كل الشعوب توحدت إلا أنا
كل الجهود تكاتفت إلا أنا
أنا الذي عانى أنا
أنا الذي قاسى أنا
يا أمتي إستيقظي

أجدادنا صنعوا الحياة
و ألهموا الكون ضياء
و آه منا نحن آه
نغفوا و أعداء لنا متربصون...يتآمرون...يترصدون و يرصدون يا أمتي
نغفوا و أعداء لنا متربصون...يفكرون...يخططون...ينفذون...يا أمتي
و دائماً نقول كنا...
يا أمتي نريد أن نكون

يا ربنا...أجب لنا
و يا أمتي إستيقظي

عمار رامي - Emad Ramy

Wake up my nation before you torn apart
Before you are lost in the darkness of the rough road

Look around you...
All people are united except me
All efforts intisified except me...
I am the one who is bleeding
I am the one who is captured...
Wake up my nation

Your memory which informed people of the right path came while my nation is crying over old glories and moving with no target
Her enimes are planining...Plotting...Conspiring
We always says "we used to be..."
My nation...We want to be

Sorry messener of God, my nation lost your path
It missed the meaning of the messege and these are my evidences
It's "children" (people) are acclaiming, playing and having fun

Our "grand parents" (ancestors) made life
And they "inspired" (spread) the world with "light" (science)
Sigh
Dear God, comply to us

إستيقظي يا أمتي من قبل أن تتمزقي
من قبل أن تتشتتي في ظلمة الدرب الشقي

فلنتظري...
كل الشعوب توحدت إلا أنا
كل الجهود تكاتفت إلا أنا
أنا الذي أدمى أنا
أنا الذي أسبى أنا
يا أمتي إستيقظي

ذكراك يا علم الهدى جاءت و هذه أمتي
تبكي على أمجادها تمضي بغير رسالة
أعداءها يخططون...يدبرون...يتآمرون
و دائماً نقول كنا...
يا أمتي نريد أن نكون

عذراً رسول الله عن مسراك غفلت أمتي
غفلت عن المعنى من الذكرى و هذه أدلتي
أبناءها يهللون و يلعبون و يمرحون يا أمتي

أجدادنا صنعوا الحياة
و ألهموا الكون ضياء
و آه منا نحن آه
يا ربنا...
إستجب لنا

21

I wasn't really excited about the movie, since I watched 23 by Jim Carrey (I like him by the way) I hated all movie titled with numbers, friends insisted and I watched it in theatre yesterday.

The movie "21" has a new idea and I loved it despite the speeches which were censored for unknown reasons.

Here is the trailer

My top 3 3D cartoons

Yesterday I watched "Bee movie", so I decided to blog about my favorite 3D cartoons (I am not talking about the old ones, only the new ones Toy Story a-like).

Number 3 goes to: Madaguscar

Number 2 goes to: The Emperor's New Groove

And number 1 goes to....
Trrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmm

Bee Movie ...It's the funniest I ever watched, I cried my eyes out yesterday while I was watching it.

Everybody should watch it NOW!

Yes what are you waiting for?

I thought to post the trailer of the movie, but that doesn't show how funny it's.

Congrats to Bee Movie for knocking off The Emperor's New Groove from my top list.

The eye

I am NOT what I am!

The eye was the last movie I watched, I also watched the original chinese movie longtime ago but I totally forgot about it but it poped in my head back while I was watching the American version of the movie.

I like it but I think the Chinese one is more sad than the American one

Promise of life


OH MY GOD, Isn't this the most beautiful song I heard since the beginning of the year or what?
It's my current national anthem LOL

Listen to the music arrangement carefully, the music massacre of the violins combined with sax...Just perfect!
The lyrics is beautiful, this is the third song I heard written by Siham She'asha'a (The first one was by Latifa "Ashoofak" and the second one is "Sho Beni" by Ibrahim Al Hakami).


Song name: Maw'ed Omr (promise of life/Date of life)
Album: Hind 2008 هند
Song genre: Slow, fast, Pop
Singer: Hind (Hend) - هند
Lyrics by: Siham She'asha'a - سهام شعشاع
Composed by: Nicolas Sa'adah Nakhlah - نيقولا سعاده نخله
Arranged by: Micheal Fadhel - ميشيل فاضل
Translated by: RADIANT GUY (ME)

Whenever I hear someone's steps I instantly think of you and your promise...
"The universe" (Figure speech for life is moving as the sun rises and set on time everyday) came on time but you never did

That promise which I've been waiting for by the window
People came by while others break a part and never got bored waiting for you
Whenever I hear someone's steps I instantly think of you and your promise...
"The universe" (Figure speech for life is moving as the sun rises and set on time everyday) came on time but you never did
Sign...You never did

When the Sun rises every morning I remember the warmth of your eyes
I've been waiting for you to come by and pity my longing to you
Nobody is waiting for me anymore, nor there is no one to warm my cold hands, nor there is no one to hear me whenever I talk
Whenever I hear someone's steps I instantly think of you and your promise...
"The universe" (Figure speech for life is moving as the sun rises and set on time everyday) came on time but you never did

كل ما سمعت دعسة حدا بفكر بوعدي و فيك
الدنيا اجت ع موعدا و انت بعد ما جيت

هالموعد اللي صارله عمر ناطر على الشباك
مرقوا بشر...فلوا بشر... ما مل يستناك
كل ما سمعت دعسة حدا بفكر بوعدي و فيك
الدنيا اجت ع موعدا و انت بعد ما جيت
آه...و انت بعد ما جيت

كل ما الصبح تشرق شمس بذكر دفا عينيك
يا ما انطرت صوبي تجي ترحم حنيني ليك
ما عاد في عندي حدا ينطر مواعيدي
و لا عاد في عندي حدا يدفي برد ايدي
و لا عاد في عندي حدا يسمعني لولا حكيت
الدنيا اجت ع موعدا و انت بعد ما جيت

Indefinite/Definite information

I probably already talked about these songs before but recently I've been listening to them again and again so I thought to re-post.

They are two separated twin songs, the first one (Indefinite information) is about when a person break a part with someone but s/he not really sure if it's really the end.

The second one (Definite information) s/he is sure now that they don't want to be around anymore.

The first song was the first track in the album and the second one is the last track in the album (11th track in the Arab version and 13th track in the international version).

Both songs shares the exact composition except the arrangement is different, the first song is classic played with a piano mostly while the second one is played with a Guitar only except in the last part when she says: "Dear God help me get away of his love, he turned my life to air! (Air is a figure speech)....Dear God support me his love doesn't make me happy anymore, I beg you don't let us get back to each others".

Here is a the first song (Indefinite information - معلوما مش أكيدة):



And here is a montage of the second one (Definite information - معلومات أكيدة):



Here is the singer (Latifa) talking about the twin songs:

2000 views


Today I reached 2000 profile views in my blogs since I started blogging in the end of 2005 (December), Currently I have 5 blogs (they probably going to be more than that) since then but I think this is a tiny number compaired to my flickr account (you can see my flickr profile here) which I started it in July 2005, until now I have more than 230000 views in flickr and waaaay less in my blogs...I guess that's only a proof of how bad blogger I am.
I wish I can express my self with words :(

وصلت 2000 مشاهدة في بروفايلي من أول ما بديت تدوين في ديسمبر 2005، حالياً عندي 5 مدونات (العدد غالباً ما راح يزيد) و الرقم هذا ولا شي مقارنة بالرقم اللي وصلتله في فلكر اللي سويته في يوليو 2005، لغاية اليوم وصل عدد الزوار ملوتي في فلكر (تقدرون تشوفون بروفايلي في فلكر إهنيه) أكثر من 230 ألف زائر و هالعدد وايد كبير مقارنة بعدد زوار مدوناتي...أعتقد هذا إثبات على إني مدون فاشل.
كنت أتمنى لو أقدر أعبر نفسي بالكلمات :(

Movie review# 5

I just watched "Shutter" which is a horror movie, I hate cinemas in Kuwait because they just censor everything and ruin any good movie.

I am not going to write the story because some people didn't watch the movie yet, but I really like the ending it's funny and scary in the same time...And that's priceless LOL

On the other hand, I am still watching Malcolm in the middle; wish me luck :S

I've been walking for many years (Years are passing)


That was one of the hardest songs to translate :D
She talk in plural form, but in Arabic it could mean two things...She could be talking about many people such as friends or family. Also in Arabic we use plural form as a sign for respect for certain person such as prince, king, or maybe a lover.

The song is full of figure speeches, the title it self is a figure speech...She doesn't mean that she is walking for many years literally, it's a figure speech for years are passing.

Song name: Mesheet Seneen (I've been walking for many years)
Album: Qad Al Horoof قد الحروف 2003
Song genre: Sharqi, Oriental, Belly Dance
Singer: Asalah, Assala, Asala - أصالة
Lyrics by: Al Nasser - الناصر
Composed by: Ya'aqoub Al Khobaizi - يعقوب الخبيزي
Arranged by: Omar Abdulaziz - عمر عبدالعزيز
Translated by: RADIANT GUY (ME)


I've been walking for many years...
While I was hiding my pain upon them...
For many years my soul was owned by them...
I've never longed to nobody except them...
And I never felt lonely while I was with them!

For my whole life I was trying to hide my agony upon them...
Because I didn't want them to suffer even by a breeze of air blowing on their eyes...
And now I regret it...
Because they betrayed our golden years together and forgot all about love in one second!

I and my heart are confused...
Although many years already passed yet we couldn't forget them...
I've hidden my tear because I didn't want them to see it...
I swallowed my sighs because I didn't want them to hear it!

I've been walking for many years...
While I was hiding my pain upon them...
For many years my soul was owned by them...
I've never longed to nobody except them...
And I never felt lonely while I was with them!

مشيت سنين...و أنا أداري عليهم
و بقيت سنين...و أنا روحي بإيديهم
و لا حنيت في يوم إلا لهواهم
و لا حسيت بالغربية في لحظة معاهم

و طول عمري بداري عليهم...
بخاف من النسمة لا تجرح عينيهم
و لكن يا ندم...
دول خانوا للعشرة و باعوا للحب و نسيوا في لحظة

أنا و قلبي يا روحي حيارة...
سنين و لا بننسى يا عيني خسارة
داريت في دمعتي خايفة لا يشوفوها...
كتمت الآه في قلبي عنهم لا يسمعوها
