For some unfathomable reason, Jordanians are in love with Bryan Adams, and a lot of the music played on the radio or blaring throughout the cafes is of the "Now 1: Top 1990s American Hits" variety. Of course, Arabic pop still rules the day, but most of the region’s well-known artists are Egyptian or Lebanese, not Jordanian. To get acclimated, I would recommend listening to two popular Egyptians: the everlasting heartthrob Amr Diab, and the traditional diva Oum Kalthoum.
