The Girl from Ipanema

RIP Astrud Gilberto (the singer):

She was only in the studio as a translator, but ended up singing on the hit song and becoming a star.

One thought on “The Girl from Ipanema

  1. The Modesto Kid

    Every time I hear a bossa nova song I assume it is going to be Girl from Ipanema and then even if it is not, I’m humming along Girl from Ipanema. A guy at my previous job had a tape of greatest hits of the 60s 70s and 80s in bossa nova arrangement that was kind of fun.
