Alissa's new Album "Bastanak"

And here she goes again: Alissa's new album was released 2 weeks ago, and she's doing it again... this girl knows how to sing songs that touch the heart....

I remember the day i started loving Alissa's music, it was one day, more than a year ago when i was going back home from Arcadia mall where i was having a course. It was round 7 pm and i was exhausted. I was riding one of those air conditioned mini buses and the radio played Alissa's song "Ahla doneya". it was simply great, the music, the lyrics, and her voice. And i was in the tired, relaxed mood that makes me romantic ;) it was the first time that i heard the song, and it really touched me...and the next day i bought her album.

Her new album is as beautiful, romantic & touching as the previous "Ahla doneya", even better...
I recommend listening to "Bastanak" guys, and tell me ur opinions ...

ohhhh lilooo, elissa's new album is one of my favourites these days! i keep on listening to it while working..
i like her music actually and her voice is somehow distinctive too, she's lucky wth composers i guess..
anyway the songs i like the most from the last album are:
Bastanak (msh bazha2 menha) highly recommended!
kermalak...(i like the words)
ba3ish 3ala 7essak..(the rythm is soo nice)
7ekayty m3ak : very romantic and touching..
law te3rafo: bet2ata3 alby lool, ba7esaha awy the new version of "sawa7" men na7yet el fekra y3ni! anyway good song brdo.
fatet senin: a real expression of being unfair (her lover)...(f3lan touching)
yalla sorry tawelt 3leiki..

hey guys, am so glad u like the album too....
my favorite also is "Lawo te3rafooh"... i actually bought the album when i listened to it on nogoom FM...

but actually i was much attracted to "kermalak" when i concentrated in its words... it talks about the typical problem of our days.. and when i told Youssef that there are many men like the one she's speaking to in the song, he told me that there are many girls like this too!
you have to listen carefully to the song & the words to understand what i mean ;)

It's written & composed by the talented Marwan Khory.

Enjoy ;)

Hi im Fathima from South Africa.. I have bought every single album that Elissa has ever made and I think she is the Lebanese Nightingale.. This woman can evoke such emotions in me I never knew existed.. Credit goes to Nader Abdullah for stunning lyrics.. I love the songs Bastannak, fatet sinean, hikayti maak is my absolute favorite, its the most romnatic song i have ever heard in my life. Also love matkhafch minni.. actually the entire album is great just like Ahla duniya, and the previous ones.. Keep up the great work Elissa!

I'm fine thanks...well I'm not the person who was asking about translting alyssa's songs...don't worry...for that I could ask my partner if I wanted...but the arabic version is definitely better.
I have read some of your thoughts, they are really nice...
