Some Brazilian songs that I like, listed in no particular order. If you see a picture above the title, you can click on it and hear the song on YouTube.
Daniela Mercury - “Nobre vagabundo” – when the world has got me down, I listen to this song and it puts a joy in my heart and a spring in my step. I stop caring about all the little things that eat away at life.
Daniela Mercury – “A primeira vista” – I heard this song on the radio, but here she sings it much better live.
Daniela Mercury – “Topo do Mundo”
Daniela Mercury – “O Canto da Cidade”
Oz Bambaz – “Balaganda”
Jorge Ben Jor, Mariana Baltar – “Zumbi” – this is a beautiful song. Once you know what the words are, it is more beautiful still. She sings it better than Jorge Ben Jor himself, who wrote it.
Marisa Monte – “Bem Que Se Quis”
Skank - “Garota Nacional”
Samantha Schmutz – “Toxic” – yes, the Britney Spears song, but Schmutz does it better even though she is mouthing the words.
Pitty - Deja Vu – I used to play this to death.
Pitty - Pulsos
Pitty - Umbrella
Vanessa da Mata – Ainda bem
