A LICENCE FOR EVERBODY - Round 4 - A Celebration of Love. I've chosen this song because it was the first Bossa Nova (literally "New Wave") song that I remember hearing; in fact - my mum used to sing it at her gigs but only in English. Have adored Brazilian music ever since - Jobim & Stan Getz, for starters - the list is endless! What amuses me is that Bossa hit the UK at about the same time as The Beatles and I often noticed (even as a child) the influence it had on their music (listen to their chord sequences)! In a nutshell - this is when music really evolved, for me anyway and as it is the greatest love of my life (after my mum) I can't think of a finer tribute. Thank you for listening. xx <3 xx
