Today Was All Peter, Paul & Mary  

[Cross-posted from my MovableType Blog]

...and written by John Denver. How apropos.

First the answers to the riddle:

Barry Manilow
"Copacabana"
Astrud Gilberto
"The Girl from Ipanema"
a bit of Duran Duran
"Rio"
Geoff & Maria Muldaur
"Aquarela do Brasil"
Peter, Paul, & Mary
"Leaving on a Jet Plane"

(Ok, Barry was singing about the nightclub in New York, Duran Duran about a woman, and I really mean the English version, "Brazil.")

All of that was stuck in my head because, [info]cfox74 and Kate teaching in Rio de Janeiro, while Bryan (Kate's husband) and I are just along for the ride. I've never been to South America, and I'm rather giddy.

See you in a week!

I was thrown off by the "sung by Astrud Gilberto" - I never knew her name. I always think of that as a João Gilberto/Stan Getz track. (trivia: did you know she had never been recorded singing prior to her singing on that track? It was a total "hey Astrud - would you mind trying to sing this? Just for fun?" thing.) I figured the Duran Duran was Rio though.

And you can tell chachicat that she is an evil, evil woman, as I've had the Smudge from Ipanema stuck in my head for a day or so now.
