These days, I work late and wake up early, so many a time I feel like my brain has some dead weights attached to it, my solution: A pick me up song.
In Ramadan, I don't like to hear english songs because they don't really put u in the mood and sometimes bey7'arafo gamed, so I hear arabic and really old arabic or Rai.
My pick me up songs--> Inshallah-Chab Mami, El donya Helwa--> Filfel el Ghoury
About Filfe El Ghoury, he was a jewish Iraqi, very strange, but his lyrics have Quran in them, go figure. Anyhow, he had a great voice, Rabena Yerhamo ba2a, and I really like his songs because it's more of Mawaweel. I also discovered a guy called "Reda El khayat", who has a song I really like called "3ala haza el 7al". In addition, I am guilty of one track of Yuri Mer2ady, called "Maza 2akool le2ozony".
I also hear Soad Massi, courtesy of the album Dina gave me a year ago, but she's more of a calm me down track. Ahh, and Marcel Khalifa's "3al Hdood", it's the only one of his that I really like.
Then you have your basics of Om Kalthoum (aroo7 lemeen, enta 3omry, 3'aneely shewaya shewaya), Abdel Wahhab (han el wed, ya ward meen yeshtereek, ya msafer wa7dak (holds great memories of Sinai)) and a couple of tracks of Fayrouz; Shadi, e3teeny el nay (my utmost favorite) and shat Eskenderia.
