The Girl from Ipanema… I smile with the thought of the tune alone. It is just a lovely, cute song with a nice summer feeling. And it has been an earworm for… a month. :p
The begining of the song is in Portuguese, which I absolutely love about it; it lets you float gently to the sweet Mediterranean with its sunny climate and wonderful sea…It just makes me happy and willing to just dance gently around the room. (are you getting the picture? 😉 )
I have always known the song, but recently rediscovered it; I was watching a video by Ingrid Nilsen and Shay Mitchell on YouTube and they were talking about it and how they have grown up with the song. I have been playing the song… a LOT ever since 😉 . (plus, the summer feeling is staying out in Belgium; maybe my underconsciousness is trying to seduce summer to finally introduce a decent weather… anyway 😛 ).

Enjoy the song and have a wonderful day!
