Global A Go-Go

GlobalaGoGo 11-23-16


A bit of South African retro-pop, reggae protest songs, Arabic indie rock, and hypnotic Saharan blues to kick off the long holiday. Bills taking a break but I’m here to jam out with you guys.
Much love,
Princess Beet Farmer

El Morabba3 (Jordan) Tarweej El Morraba3 Universal Music 2012 "Propaganda The country is fading away behind the wall, a sound is coming from between the two rivers The executioner's hand is extending from above, to the east and the west Where do i rebel! where is the one who can change the scene The administrator is watching like a quiet stone, counting money And the countries is coming back from behind the wall, And the light is extending between the rivers The right is back from the same land and from the same people Where do i rebel! where is the one who can change the scene! The administrator is getting promoted, and that's wake the oblivious mind up, so the people getting up The countries are coming back from behind the wall And the right is back from the same land and from the same people The light is extending between the rivers The wall is falling down and the right is back From the same people, to the same people"

El Far’i (Jordan, Palestine) Tghayarti 2014 "you changed You've left me with no options, I've zoned out while starring at you, why have you changed? You've buried me under your streets, now that my voice echoed in its sewerage, why didn't you declare that ? Hide and sleep in your spot, they are saying that the night is jealous of you And continue being my address, for in your absence we have no neighbors We are the new stories We are the new presents We are the stories in which… Not everything that pleases you suits us! Why have you changed? My longing remained a waterfall running through your neighborhoods Look outside of you window, please tell me, how are we supposed to be able to go to sleep? There is nothing left here to be humiliated, come back and find us, because the journey is causing us to stray away We are the new stories We are the new presents We are the stories in which… Not everything that pleases you suits us!"

Jadal (Jordan) Ana Bakhaf Min el Commitment El Makina Jadal 2012 "I am afraid of commitment I put you on my shoulders then I combed my hair, because you asked for it. I gave you my jacket when you felt cold It smelled feminine afterwards, I drove you home and waited till you turn on the light in your room. This is not a fundamental feeling But I believe in my feelings You cursed the hell out of me we got in trouble, and I didn't ask for it. I suggest that you do the easy thing for both us, If we have eye contact , let it not be more than four seconds, Or I would be able to see through you you will respect me but I will not respect you and get lost! Although it's not your fault, I am just afraid of getting used to you I get mad if I call you and you dont answer you say that you like my voice And you will become my dearest friend But my friend helps me push my car even if it's too late at night (2 million o'clock!) From the first time I saw you I should have turned my back and fled, and ran far away I didn't know that I would love you as I m afraid of commitment I m afraid of commitment"
