Garota De Ipanema
Wow the moment I heard a sample of this song I was passionately driven to find the original version. Thanks to youtube and some elbow grease I was able to back track and find the original composers of this Brazilian bossa nova classic. The version posted below happens to be my favorite version, combining both the original Portuguese version (composed and written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes) and the English equivalent (written by Norman Gimbel). To be succinct, this track offers the best of both worlds!
Now find a nice comfortable place, relax and press play! You can thank me later.
