Time to say goodbye



Yesterday I've gathered the forsaken cassette tapes that I still have, from Um Klathoom, Fairuz & Warda, to the Lebanese 70's songs, then Amr Diab, Simone, Hamid Elshairi and the rest of 80's and 90's Arabic music… The English oldies, Beatles and Aabba, 80's Rock and Pop, Madonna and "NOW" hits… almost 570 tapes! (Not to forget that I threw out almost the same amount 3 years ago!).

Now, since we're drowning in the world of the CD's, are cassette tapes worth keeping? I asked myself, and will they become antiquities one day? Then what will happen when we'll ask the same question soon about CD's? However, I only kept 30 lovable tapes for the sake of the beautiful memories, and maybe for the coming generation's zest :-) for the rest tapes, I say goodbye…
