All The Verses


As usual, I was having a little time on my hand, so I thought I would spend some time with youtube’s search engine and type different keywords; hoping might find something exciting. And I did. I happened to stumble upon a bit old video clip of Marwan Khoury’s song called “All the verses (Kel Al Qasayed).” I used to listen to this song a lot but I’ve never seen the video clip until now. The video reminded me of another one he made (and luckily I found it on youtube too) called “Take me with you (Kodni Maak)”, another favorite sing of mine.

I wound up “googling” this guy up (stop laughing) and found he has an official website, at least 3 fan-made websites, and an article about him on CNN.com, in which they called him (The Prince of Romance)…and I happened to agree too. You might want to know that he writes his own lyrics and composes his songs; in fact, according to my cousin, other Arabic singers will “kill” just to get him write and compose a song for them. Cool! Too bad I didn’t find any video clips from his latest album “Palace of Compassion (Qaser Al Shouq)”, in which it released on Christmas Break last year when I happened to be in Kuwait (and yes I paid 5KD to get his “original” album). Anyway, I’ll leave you with the “All the verses’ video clip in the mean time.


PS: Is it me or did he lose some weight in his latest album cover?

This type of songs realllyyyyy dont appeal to me! Romantic songs overall dont appeal to me.. but you sure did a lot of research on the guy!

A little to much research in my opinion :p. joking......

@Marzouq: Research? Not really, most of the info I got was from page 1 of the google page. Hmmm, I understand when some people get nausea from romantic songs but I think it's good to have a variety. I just hope your appeal in romantic songs doesn't extend to your personal life...otherwise, Mrs. Marzouq will be soooo maaaaad LOOOL :)

@Alchemist: Wahhh...you have a sick mind you know that LOOOL! Those songs are classic and ain't replaceable but it's good to appreciate SOME of the Arabic music nowadays.

@Samboosa: Might be...but the I cannot argue you about the talent part :)

@Adorra: Sweeeeeeeet ^_^

@Bella: LOOOOOOOOL, yeah he kinda is. Maybe that's why he composes and write for other singers...it seems he thinks that too so he lets other people to use his material :p

hmmm I wonder if I'm allowed or even supposed to be reading your blog... is that kind of like crossing my limits and accessing/invading someone's else's privacy??? which I really don't like to do although I do give everyone premission to view mine!

anyways fallen angel I'm so sorry if you did not like me going through your blog... but I really thought it was interesting till I reached the part about Marwan Khouri... I like the guy I think he's a good nerd to have among our arab nerds! I think he's music and his clips take you to a different world.. isn't that what we want though??!!

I'm not a huge music fan... I listen to Sami Yosuf... But I do like Marwan and older music like abdel haleem ,najat el zagheereh.. um kalthoum etc.

btw The Alchemist was one of my wonderful and favorite books ever read:)
