Sunday Fun: Happy 50th Birthday to "The Girl From Ipanema"

...to one of the greatest songs and recordings of all time.

The Wall Street Journal has a fascinating article about both. The article includes the fact the song was based on a real person. If you want to see her photo, just click on the link above.

And, if you would like to hear a clip of the original recording with both Antonio singing in Portuguese and Astrud in English (with Stan Getz on sax), click here
