I recently got a satellite dish and now we get an Arabic channel, MBC.  I watched one of the music video programs the other day, which had some pretty good music.  I particularly like Amr Diab.  Anyone here into Arabic music?  It usually has a great beat and good use of strings.

Bellydancing's cool. you might want to do a search on Soulseek or whatever P2P program you use and look up for songs that have the word Habibi (Sweetheart) in it.  

HABIIIIIBI YALLA  YALLAAA

Some important names:

Ali Hassan Kuban
Amir Diab
And although this isn't exactly Arabic,  get a song from Panjabi MC called Mundian To Bach Ke.  That was the hit of last summer in the Middle East.
context, context, context.

I like Paint it Black from the Rolling Stones. I don't know why but I find it very arab-sounding

Not sure if Gypsy music is really Arabic, but this is great:
