The Girl From Ipanema

Ah … what memories from the ’60s … The song resurrected for Gisele Bundchen’s catwalk to help open this year’s olympics in Rio.  The story behind the story is in today’s Wall Street Journal.

    Great post, Len. I love your eclectic tastes.

    I agree with this comment:
    Seriously?
    The ROYALTIES garnered from literally billions of people hearing the song– some probably for the first time– because of the supermodel’s involvement will line her father’s pockets until the day he dies!
    I am much more miffed at the Olympics’ complete ignoring of the music of Heitor Villa-Lobos, Brazil’s greatest composer!
