A Song from the Revolution: January 25

Listen to songs on NPR: Songs of the Egyptian Protests.

"One song that's been very popular with Arab-Americans in the U.S. is called "January 25," or "#Jan25," after a trending topic on Twitter. Arab-American and African-American musicians living in different parts of North America contributed to the song. The first verse, which was written by rapper Omar Offendum, begins, 'I heard them say the revolution won't be televised / Al-Jazeera proved them wrong / Twitter has them paralyzed.'"
