Arabs love their songs, right? But not a lot of them are gay. Of course there's awesome gay songs in English, and gay icons. But there's something different about Arab songs.
For me, I love to take "straight" songs, or even really homophobic songs, and pretend they're gay! Like Fares Karam, "yelly ma be7eb el niswan", whoever doesn't like women. I know as a male singer its a really homophobic song. But whenever there's an engagement or a party and my mom and her friend are gathering around dancing, I always laugh so hard when they play this song. It's like, yes, Fares Karam, I loooove women too!
