Take it to the bridge

A soundtrack while you follow Al Jazeera updates all day: Leila Mourad, the voice of the 1952 Egyptian Revolution, singing her famous “Life is a Song”.

(Remember when there was no need to qualify “Egyptian Revolution” with “1952” because it was clear to what you referring? An old story, from long ago, remembered in black & white, when Cairo had spacious gardens and beautiful people spoke always in song.)
