May is continuing to be a month of celebrity deaths. Shortly after reading about Donna Summer's death last night, I found out Warda, the legendary Algerian singer died of a heart attack yesterday.
I used to see her sing a lot on TV in the 1970s and 80s and I remember she was my mother's favourite singer. She made a huge come back in the 1990s, but this is my all time favourite song by Warda from the 1973. It's called وحشتونى (Wahastouni / I Missed You) from a film called حكايتى مع الزمان (Hikayti Ma'e Al Zaman / My Story with Time).
RIP Warda, 1939-2012
