Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 - Mas Que Nada


Recommended Posts

 

 

Brazilian classic composed ( and also sometimes performed ) by Jorge Ben.....Mendes then made it an Int'l hit in the mid-sixties

 

Al Jarreau made an awesome rendition of this one

The 2 female vocalists are/were US ladies singing in Portuguese

 

 

I love Brazil despite all the huge problems ( latest one: a fascist, arrogant, ignorant president unable / unwilling  to curb CV...among other things )...I hope to go back ASAP....

      Awesome song imho...I love this version
       
      Composed by Vinicius De Moraes-RIP

      It's better to be happy than to be sad
      Joy is the best thing that exists
      It's like the light inside the heart.
       
      However, for writing a beautiful samba, it is required a lot of sadness otherwise you can't do it.
      Writing a samba is not telling a joke And those who write sambas like these aren't worth it
       
      The good samba is a kind of prayer Because samba is the sadness that moves you
      And the sadness always hopes
      One day not being sad anymore.
       
      Add some love to a pace And you shall see
      that nobody in the world can beat The beauty contained in a samba
       
      Because the samba was born there in Bahia
      And if today it's white regarding its poetry
      It's too black in its heart.
