Sunday, October 31, 2004Sami Yusuf. This guy is the same age as me and boy is he talented. He has given birth to the concept of an ‘Islamic pop video’, although highly idealistic, it’s a refreshing change and it is in English. Its now showing on Melody hits pop channel, squeezed in between Nancy 3ajram and Rouby. But why not? At least its reaching a different kind of audience in this holy month. The song is called ‘Al’muallim’, click on the second clap board icon to watch the video.
Second up, is Eminem and his anti-Bush video Mosh. The message here: get angry, go out vote and boot Bush. Not really my kinda music but at least the guy is trying to get the Black Americans to vote.
Finally, you’ve probably seen it, but I thought this anti-victimization video was great. Cinnamon Girl by Prince. Although its hardly true that every bullied muslim girl will want to blow up her local airport, I do appreciate his sympathy with American Muslims.
