Your music guide to a less stressful Ammani winter

*Bear with me the 1st world problems, just for the sake of this post….I promise I won’t do it again*

The Hollywood romantic winter we watch in movies is not really what we get at this end of the world.  Sinking in Amman’s tunnels is not cozy, and I have to say getting locked up for a week and a half waiting for the unprecedented, unexpected, and uninvited Jordanian snow to miraculously disappear, is not fun either.

Well if this winter will eat us up like last year (wait until January), we must get prepared. Instead of getting cranky in the middle of the horrible traffic that would at best end in a verbal fight or at worst end with at least one casualty, try listening to the playlist below. It is jazzy, energetic and might help you find the good in that ***** who just mud splashed you!

Let’s just hope internet would survive the storm!

1. Les Pessants

I hope I’m as optimistic about Amman as the singer is about Paris who loves  it in all seasons (1:28).

Well I love Amman… In May… that’s it. Just because the whole universe has not yet invaded the country, and Amman’s 5 bushes have not yet left.


2. Comes Love

“Comes a snowstorm get a little heat. But comes Love, nothing can be done”. Well I’m not sure we can relate to this song.

Actually it’s the opposite here. Preventing love is much easier than preventing a snowstorm; many things can be done when love happens. Interrogation, abuse, and honor killing, are only a few. But when a snowstorm comes, nothing can be done!

I think  I’ve gone wrong with my target group.


3. Blue Angel

“Your Mama never told you how you’re supposed to treat a girl”

Ok I’m back on track. Enjoy a lazy and unique wintry voice. (wait until 0:40)


4. Dance me to the end of Love

A beautiful song to end  your hectic Ammani rainy day.

Winter might be a very good reason to leave Amman, but I keep remembering the city’s Jasmine scent in Spring and I get weak!
