It’s been a while since we have featured one of these. The song Corcovado by the incomparable Tom Jobim is one of the most beautiful Bossa Nova melodies ever written. Few things help me relax more than this lovely piece.
And nobody sings it better than the Japanese/Brazilian vocalist Lisa Ono.

My favorite line from the song:

E eu que era triste,
Descrente deste mundo,
Ao encontrar você eu conheci,
O que é Felicidade, Meu Amor.


And I, who was sad,
Disillusioned with this world,
Upon meeting you I learned
What happiness is, My Love.

Talk back to the missionary:
