The other night I was lucky enough to see the most beautiful sunset.
The sky was SO pink!
As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect to share for Pink Saturday with Beverly from How Sweet the Sound.
The view from my kitchen window was stunning!
How lucky was I to have such a beautiful pink sunset to look at while I made dinner and helped the kid's with their homework?
No stress in our house that night!
Actually, I don't usually stress too much at dinner time because I try to listen to relaxing music to keep me calm. Most nights I listen to Bossa Nova music as I find it to be pacy enough to get me moving but mellow enough to keep me relaxed. I have a few favourite songs on my ipod but I often just log into the site LIVE 365 on my kitchen computer. LIVE 365 is a great online radio station and there are so many Bossa Nova stations that you can listen to for free! If you haven't seen this site yet I really recommend it!
Okay, back to talking about Bossa Nova!
Bossa Nova was developed in Brazil in 1956 by João Gilberto, who is now known as the "Father of Bossa Nova." .
You might recall that a couple of weeks ago I featured a song by the beautiful Polish singer Basia for my Tuesday Tune post?
Basia's love affair with the bossa nova and samba came from her admiration for Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto, João Gilberto's first wife. You might also recall that I have also featured João Gilberto's daughter from his second marriage, Bebel Gilberto...I guess you can tell by now that I really LOVE Bossa Nova music!
So, for today's #TuesdayTune I am sharing the first bossa nova single to achieve international popularity. I would say that it is still the most successful bossa nova song of all time....
I hope you enjoy "The Girl From Ipanema" sung by Astrud Gilberto.
Don't you feel relaxed now!
Do you share a song on your blog each week? If so then I would love it if you could link up with me on Tuesdays for Tuesday Tune. You can link an older post too!
It is so easy to add a clip from youtube to your blog. When you locate a video you'd like to add to your post, look below the video for an Embed link . When you click the Embed link, the HTML code used to embed that video is displayed directly below it. By clicking your mouse within the new embed code, all the text in that field is highlighted. You then right mouse click in that field, and select Copy from your browser's drop down that will appear when you right click in the field. Then just click paste and you are done!
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope your weekend is fabulous, pink and very relaxing!
