My kids have been singing it ever since they went back to school - they've been showing it to them in every arabic lesson. This morning they were watching on youtube and the eldest daughter decides to look up some of his other stuff. I walked past and asked her why she was listening to Cat Stevens (she's got pretty weird taste in music for a kid of ten so it didn't surprise me). She said "I'm not, I'm listening to Yousef Islam, the old arabic guy who sings Ramadan Moon". I couldn't believe it was him I'd been listening to since they started playing it. I explained he wasn't arabic and he used to be Cat Steven's showed her some of his older stuff. I expect him to become one of her favorites like Bob Marley any day now.

Of course not, they are more knowledgeable here. It's such a mixed bag of BEs in the Lounge and TIO ! I also do it to tease as well, but it is educational for quite a few people as I get lots of karma !!

Anyway I don't bring it up all the time - only when some BE says something that irritates me, such as not knowing the difference between Britain and England.
