Marisa Monte
“Universo Ao Meu Redor”

I’ve been taken to a new place, musically. Hold on for the ride–we’re in samba country now. Whilst I digress, I’ll wax poetic a bit about the paradigm shift. I’m only kidding. That was a bit of an inside joke.

I’m probably going to be in this realm of music for a while. Don’t lose interest. We’ll come back to reality eventually.

This CD was released in 2006, and I had quite a hard time deciding which one of her songs to post. They’re all amazing.

From the Album: Universo ao Meu Redor

Quantic & Nickodemus
“Mi Swing es Tropical”

I fell in love with this tune the first time I heard it in a commercial for Apple’s iPod. This Spanish number has been stuck in my head for days. Posting it here was the only way to get it out of my system. This song is featured on the CD associated with this post as well as a CD for Quantic, since this track was apparently a collaborative effort.

I hope this song is as fun for you as it is for me.

From the Album: Endangered Species
