CAAF: New Year, new things

My friend R. recently introduced me to Tom Jobim's "Águas de Março." It's a wondrous little song, and an especially nice one to listen to on a day like today, when you may find yourself back at a desk feeling simultaneously tamped down and stretched thin. Here it's performed by Elis Regina (and provided with English subtitles). If you like it, you may want to get Elis & Tom -- the album was new to me, but probably isn't to many About Last Night Readers and, evidently, if you grew up in Brazil in the '70s your house had a copy.*

* After seeing that last "if you grew up in Brazil in the '70s" observation a few different places online, I've been amusing myself trying to think of what the album's American equivalent would be, ubiquity-wise: Music Box Dancer? Jonathan Livingston Seagull? Aloha From Hawaii?
