On the Origins of Songs – The Girl from Ipanema

garotas and creepers in harmony

Opera is sung in Italian. Rock is sung in English. Whining is done in Icelandic. Dogs are trained in German. World War II orders were broadcast in Navajoan… and bossa nova is sung in Portuguese.

I don’t know anything about dancy, DJ’y stuff but Quincy Jones is pretty cool and trashy young women are a sign of the times so here are a few more. Banjo-girl (at the bottom) is just pushing a good product.
