Sunday Fun: The Great Astrud Gilberto

I happened to come across an item that the amazing Astrud Gilberto recently celebrated her 80th birthday.

Like every American teenaged boy of the 1960's, I was love with that voice on such songs as Meditation and Corcovado. But, The Girl From Ipanema is probably a "perfect" song. Her incredibly clear voice, the wonderful accompaniment, and the sexy sway of a Bossa Nova beat: Perfect.
