On Syrian and Iraqi Tears This Rouwaida Attieh Song Will Break Your Heart

First, there was the tragic blues of Iraq, then now Syria is catching up with the most heartbreaking songs. Yet, Syrian pop hit-maker Rouwaida Attieh got a new song, written by an Iraqi song poet to express how she feels. The song is about tears, and growing apart....

the music video tells a tear jerking song. Rouwaida Attieh  has a very strong voice, which is becoming a rare feature in pop music, but not to Syrian voices. I love the song but it's not meant to be enjoyed more than once....if you do feel the urge to listen to it more than once, then you are really sad, and maybe you need to het help.

Rouwaida Attieh is expanding her reach beyond Syria and Lebanon, this song landed well in Iraq. Certainly many Syrians who have witnessed in the first person the woes of war can relate.
