Mubarak Resigns! Egyptians Rejoice in Soft Rock!

02/11/2011 2:11 PM |

Every political protest needs a song. And sure enough, Hany Adel (member of popular Egyptian soft rock band Wust El-Balad), singer Amir Eid and guitarist Hawary collaborated to post theirs—a music video filmed at the protests in Tahrir Square. It’s called “Sout al Horeya,” and it means “The Sound of Freedom.”

Check out the lyrics (thanks Al Jazeera bloggers) after the jump.

“I went down and I said I am not coming back, and I wrote on every street wall that I am not coming back.

All barriers have been broken down, our weapon was our dream, and the future is crystal clear to us, we have been waiting for a long time, we are still searching for our place, we keep searching for a place we belong too, in every corner in our country.

“The sound of freedom is calling, in every street corner in our country, the sound of freedom is calling..

“We will re-write history, if you are one of us, join us and don’t stop us from fulfilling our dream.

The sound of freedom is calling.”
