"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon." (Psalm 92:12)
I know it is almost 2 years since U2 announced their latest Album ,"No Line on the Horizon", including the hits : "Magnificent, I ' ll go crazy if I dont go crazy tonight" ... But there was a song that caught my attention back then in 2009: " Cedars of Lebanon".. I have been procrastinating since then to blog about it. I think it is never too late to blog about it, especially after I heard Lady Gaga's song saying something that even if you are Lebanese its ok because you are born this way! "
And, I am not posting this out of nationalism or fanaticism, about the Cedars of Lebanon, Lebanese heritage or what Lebanon has offered to the world .I am just wondering how a song like "Cedars of Lebanon" and Born this way" talk about Lebanon. Gaga mentions a line only in her song, while U2 wrote a whole song about "Lebanon", or atleast of a “Lebanese experience” by a foreigner.
