“Aisha, écoute-moi!” (“Woman, Listen to Me!”)

Love this song! A big thanks to my buddy, Said, for introducing me to the music of Cheb Khaled.  Yes, this is an oldie but it’s a goodie!

  1. It’s, “Aicha, listen to me”

    • Are you correcting the “Aicha vs. Aisha” bit or the use of “woman listen to me” vs “aicha listening to me”?! The reason I wrote “woman” as a translation is because Aisha/Aicha comes from Hebrew (first used in Genesis for Eve) and means “woman”, being the female form of “man” or “adam” by adding an “a” to “Aich” (man). ;-)

  2. yeah it is Aicha, listen to me.

    Friends of mine named their daughter Aicha, inspired by this song.

    • Hi, Sythe. That’s cool that your friends named their daughter after this song. Wow! And I thought I liked the song!!! :-)

  3. The song was actually written for Khaled by the French songwriter, Jean-Jacques Goldman and was a huge hit in France in 1996. Khaled later added a Arabic verse.

  4. I have always loved this song. Thanks for reminding me :)

    • Hi, Nadia. The song not only sounds great, but the lyrics (if you know French) are great as well. I hope you’re doing well in Salalah! :-)

  5. Brought back lovely memories.. :) though I could’nt understand the words, I loved the passion with which he sang the song.. Thanks for this lovely reminder !

    • Deepti,
      just type in “Aicha English lyrics” in youtube and you’ll easily find a video with the lyrics printed out. FANTASTIC lyrics! And like you said, passionate singing helps as well!
