“Garota De Ipanema” by Vinicius de Moraes and Tom Jobim (1962)

Genre: Bossa Nova

Backstory: The two musicians were sitting at a bar near Ipanema Beach in Rio, when they saw the most beautiful woman walk by and wrote this song down on a bar napkin. The rest my friends is blissful history.

Why It’s Great: This song IS Brazil. Also, It became the most second re-recorded song in all of history after “Yesterday” by The Beatles. Booyah!
