    Default To me, this is a perfect song...



    ... and I felt like sharing it with TC today. Bossa nova seems to be neglected on this forum, which is a real pity. It's an astoundingly beautiful genre. The harmonies, the rhythms (!), the melodies, the moods, the beautiful language of Portuguese... I love pretty much everything about it. And if I had to choose a favorite song to represent the genre, this might be it.

    Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed that a lot.

    I listen to (electronic) bossa / latin club music sometimes and it always lifts my spirits. Simply because it's so... sunny.

    Here's a favorite of mine:

    as we are in bossa mood, this is one of my favourites penned by Jobim. Such beautiful harmonic progressions...The drummer plays the classic bossa rhythm.

    In this song the beautiful melody is whistled and harmonized, with some great acoustic and electric guitar accompaniment and bass.
