Sad Songs



This program is dedicated to all those with heavy hearts. Kahraba brings together miscellaneous selections of sad songs from the '80s. Old tracks, dear to us all, these songs serve as an antidote to "sad" songs produced today, as compression and acceleration have taken precedence and lead to a crisis of emotional content. You will hear an eclectic mix of some well known pop songs, both Arabic and English, power ballads, some new wave, some live recordings, and a menagerie of melancholic breaks... truly the saddest parts of the saddest songs.
