The Eight-Track Tape of Dorian Gray

The Dread Dormomoo, Riatsila, and I went to our current favorite Mexican Restaurant, El Olmeca, in Ardmore, AL tonight. Their ASCAP-approved (it says so on the door!) soundtrack was doing its South of the Border best, when a tune from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites popped up. Mas Que Nada by Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66.
Mmmmmmm, tasty. Lani Hall did the lead vocal. Tasty, indeed. She is the wife of Herb Alpert, and went on to a solo career.In 1983 she sang the eponymous main title for Never Say Never Again . She sounded the same as she did almost 20 years previously.
What pipes. Check out her stuff online. Amazing talent.

Oh, and the dinner was good, too!

Wow...nothing worse than an upset punditry! Huxterby and Le Nègre Magique winning in Iowa. Kind of amazing. I'm just bored with the whole thing. It's a washout if anyone but Ron Paul gets in. Yes, I really believe that.

I'll check that music out. I'm actually a big fan of Astrud Gilberto... I love bossa nova.

I remember when "Ipanema" was NEW!

"Long and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking..."

The song is so lovely it makes me heartsick.
