AbstractOld is gold “The 50s”: it's a selection of the most celebrated Egyptian and western songs of the 50s performed by young Egyptian singers. "Mustapha ya Mustapha" is a song that was very famous in the 50s and early 60s. The original version of this catchy song (having a Greek style music) and its composer are controversial, many claim that the version of a certain singer is the original one. It appeared in one of the films of the Egyptian actor, the Late Ismail Yasseen, in the 50s and in another Egyptian film of Sabah from the same era (Al hob keda). The Izmir born singer Dario Moreno (1921-1968) performed it in the late 50s. In Europe, the song became popular with the help of Bob Azzam (A Lebanese singer born in Egypt) who published it in 1960 in France with lyrics consisting of 3 languages.
