You say I love you I will not forget you - By The Jordanian Band Mirage (Mustafa Shashaa & Suheir Odeh)

الاردن :: من الثمانينات :: فرقة الميراج : سهيرعودة ومصطفى شعشاعة : تقول اهواك انا مانساك

A song with a little scandal story...

This song is an interesting song from the 80s, from Jordan. It was a very popular song during the mid/late eighties. Check out the headbands and women's hairdos.The music also reminds me of Cindy Lauper, early Madonna stuff, David Bowe, you know, pop music of the 80s, notice the base, the synth... so 80s . I loved this song , especially the part where she is walking with a bunch of her girlfriends friends wearing Bedouin clothes and 80s headbands and tights, so funny...

The band that sings this song is a Jordanian band called Mirage, was called Mirage, they  stopped singing unfortunately. They were a talented couple, a man and a woman , who are married. They got into a really bad scandal though, After which I heard they immigrated to Canada and left Jordan. So, this poor couple, who are married, it seems they enjoyed taping themselves having sex and watching themselves later, uhumm, so one day a thief came and stole their house and included in the stuff that was stolen was their VCR with guess which tape in it?? Yes, you guessed right. Next the tape was all over the black market and with every pimple-faced teenager in Jordan and many arab countries ... the poor couple were shamed and destroyed. They had to run away to the land of the west..They say they immigrated to Canada.. masakeen..

Now isnt this is story?

I wonder what they are doing now.. I wonder if they are alive .. I hope they are .. I hope they are alive and making some very cool music ..

Cheers to Suheir Mustafa Sha-sha-a  (sha3sha3a)  سهير شعشاعة / فرقة الميراج الأردنية. Here are the lyrics translated by your truly for your pleasure.

تقول اهواك

 You say I love you

انا مانساك

 I will not forget you



وتروح وما نرجع

and you leave and never come back?

تقول انتي القمر

 you say you are (like) the moon

بليل السهر

 In the long night

مثل السحر فلّيت

 like magic you went away

وليلي طويل

 and my night is long

اسأل نجوم الليل

 I ask the stars of the night

ما تيجيب

 They dont answer

صمت الحجر قاسي

 silence of the stone is cruel

واقول اخطيت

 I say I did wrong

يمكن أكون اخطيت

maybe i did wrong


 or I forgot

وقليبي مش ناسي

but my heart is not forgetting

تقول اهواك انا مانساك

 you say I love you I will never

forget you

وتروح وما ترجع

and you leave and never come back

يركض بينا العمر

 Time runs fast

شاب الشعر

 my hair is getting grey

بتمنى طلتك

 I wish for you show up

وابعث مرسال ورا مرسال

 I send to y


time after time


مادري تقول حسيت

 I wonder if you feel me

تقولي كلام

 you tell me words

احلى من الاحلام

that are sweeter than dreams


 and more beautiful

ويضيع معانيه

 and then all the meanings are lost

تغيب سنين

you disappear for years!

وسنين تغيب  وما تسأل

 and years you disappear

and you never ask

والعشق لمّا زال

 but in love , I still am


 being away from you

يا عمري طال

 has gone for too long

my precious

وصعب الحال

 My situation is hard

ما يهدا البال

my mind never eases

تقول اهواك

 you say I love you

انا مانساك

 I will never forget you



وتروح وما نرجع

 and you leave and you never come back?
