Single Saturdays: Ragheb Alama – Sodfi

Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama has released a new single entitled Sodfi (A Coincidence). It tells the story of a man who misses the woman he loves and reunites with her.

The music is similar to Ragheb Alama’s classic songs from the 80s and 90s such as Ya Rait (My wish or I wish), Noqdat Da’af (Weak point), and Alby Aseqha (My Heart Loves Her). It has a sweet and romantic beat. The musical style is a fantastic combination of old-fashion Arabic or Middle Eastern Music mixed with contemporary pop. Having heard his older songs and more recent works, it shows in the music the quality work.

Ragheb Alama’s voice is incredible and rhythmic. He follows the notes precisely. He sings with comfort and kindness, which is romantic.

The lyrics have a beautifully written structure to them. The rhyme arrangement is similar to ABBA with some freestyle. The subject of love is timeless, especially when two people reunite in love to give it a second chance. That isn’t common in love songs. It’s either about falling in love or heartbreak. Sources say that the song Sodfi is a sequel to a classic of Ragheb Alama entitled Asif Habibty (I’m sorry my love). It’s the technique of self-referencing. Drawing the parallel between these two songs was interesting.

The song Sodfi is now available.
