Hi folks,
 
Just curious as to what your favourite song(s) are in Portuguese.
 
I like a song called So Com Voce, by The Thievery Corporation. Often there songs are in French, but this is the only one I've spotted so far that's in Portuguese.
 
I also like the David Bowie tracks rewritten by Seu Jorge on the The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou soundtrack.
 
So what are your favourites?

C'mon Russell, that track has 3 words in it! Nevertheless its a goody.

okay here's mine:

Preta Pretinha - Novos Baianos
Deixa a vida me levar - Zeca Pagodinho
Verdade - Zeca Pagodinho
Bargaço da Laranga - Zeca P & Jovelina
Bebadosamba - Paulinha da Viola
Que Pena - Jorge Ben Jor
Mas Qu Nada - Jorge Ben Jor
Ninguem Vai Tirar Voce de Mim - Roberto Carlos (singer not footballer)
Eu Te Amo - Roberto Carlos
Na Ha Dinheiro Que Pague - Roberto Carlos
Trem Das Onze - Not sure who the original artist is.
Malandro - Jorge Aragão
Coisinha do Pai - Jorge Aragão
Moleque Atrevido- Jorge Aragão
Casa de Bamba - Martinho da Vila
Devar Devagarinho - Martinho da Vila
Most of Marisa Monte, Caetano Veloso & Bossa, some Alcione, Chico  Buarque, Ivete, Timbalada.....

Just whilst on the subject of music, does anyone like Jeito Moleque, Calypso, As Leaos or say some Tati Quebra Barraco?

I'm taking Cavaquinho classes at the moe. Does anyone play a brazilian instrument out there?

I can't find the lyrics, but it's definitely more than 3 words
 
I like it more for the style, which is gorgeous. I heard one Thievery Corporation track playing an uber-chic club a few months back, but I would love to find a club that plays more of their tracks.

Wow! Good for you.

I wanted to take up piano lessons again, so nothing very Brazilian unfortunately. My creative side has been stifled for a few years, as I used to play piano and cello a decade or so ago. I need to get back into it, more so the piano.

Anyone know any good piano teachers?

Thievery is one awesome outfit. You said hear them live. They both DJ and sometimes do live PA. Re: club that plays good lounge music, don't know but if you find one, let me know.

This dreadlocked cavaco teacher plays almost anything. I will ask him as he kept on trying to explain various aspects of music theory with the piano keys as an example.

I know a piano teacher... but what kind of music? Classical, jazz?....

As you're a music lover... I don't know if you've watched "Calle 54", kind of a documentary/movie with some musicians...

Russell, if you like So Com Voce, by the Thievery Corporation which was sung by Bebel Gilberto (yes, the daughter of Joao Gilberto and Miucha) then you'll probably like Aganjú or Cada Beijo (2 versions of this at least, one of which is a mix by the Thievery Corporation) as well!
