I don’t write so often about my love for music and my being so intent about making playlists. I would like to share though this album that I have been thinking of for so long. Photo taken more than 2 years hence (Etihad flight).
Well, I was not really searching for it, but it occasionally plays in my head. It all started during my first trip to Abu Dhabi. This airline has a very, very good music collection/library. It came to a point that during the 8-hour flight I put up a couple of playlist after sorting almost half of the collection. And it is so weird of me that when I would be traveling the same route, I would reserve the same seat number hoping that my playlist is still there. Thankfully, no one is deleting it. Anyway, my fascination cannot be sustained like that forever. So, I gave in and finally have my most favorite among the albums from the airline’s music library.

Hehe. Mahilig ka rin pala kay Astrud. My favorites are “a certain sadness” at “gentle rain”. Sarap patugtugin lalo na pag nag-iisa ka sa gabi. : )
Back in college, when my Mom first heard her sing, commented; “Ano ba yan, parang ina-antok ang kumakanta”. : D
i love her! i fell in love with bossa nova because of her with her husband joao and carlos jobim. even in HS, i enjoyed the music. only in college did i learn what people actually call it! thanks for the link!
I love, Love, LOVE Astrud! Her voice soothes and relax me especially when I need to chill a bit.
GIRLN FROM IPANEMA, ONE OF THE TRACKS IN THE MOVIE ALPHA DOG,PLAYED AT THE BOTTOM,ASTIG. FLY ME TO THE MOON,JULIE LONDON’S VERSION, FASHION TV SOUNDTRACK, MAGANDA. DINDI BY WILLIE BOBO IS INCLUDED IN THE 105.1 CLASSIC CROSSOVER COLLECTION ENTITLED, “UNWIND”(I), AYOS. BUT, FREDDIE GARCIA(abs cbn) DID SING IT well when ms. vernie varga asked him to do so during one of its christmas episodes. Indeed, pilipinas got talent.
felicidade… sounds so familiar. im checking it now.
i think i’ll know these songs once i listen to them. i haven’t been listening to any music lately except for the ones that come on the radio when i’m driving. i don’t even know what’s the most popular music these days. ugh, i feel so behind.
yay. bakit di ako familiar sa music nya. better check some songs on the net hehehe.
Alam mo parang may kanta si Astrud na wala dito sa list, I can’t pinpoint which song of hers that I really like.
Wow, thanks for sharing this. Sounds like her songs would be great additions to my night time playlist. 🙂
I totally agree with you. Astrud Gilberto is one of the very best jazz/easy listening music you can have 😉
I don’t think I can claim I know these songs…am not really big on music. Sad, right? But still will google this..hehe.
I love Astrud. 🙂 Just wanted to say hi and thank you for all the kind words on my blog.

I love the songs. So soothing to the senses. Thanks for sharing the link.
That’s two no’s for me: Same plane and same seat; and Astrud. I mean, I haven’t experienced them.
I asked around and someone said nga that she’s really good.
He said: Do you know Sitti?
Sabi ko: Jazzy?
He said: Kinda. Sorta.
Tonight when I get home, I’ll listen to the Queen of Ipanema.
It’s so nice to visit your site again. I’ve missed you. So i linked you once again to my new home and followed you in twitter for updates. ^_^
Btw, i tried downloading your album but it is no longer available. Do you have another link that works? hihi Thanks ^_^
And I have also given you a Blog Award here http://cutifymyworld.blogspot.com/2010/03/blog-award.html
Hello! Nice to hear from you again. 🙂
I think the link to download the file gets deactivated once it reached the maximum number of downloads (i.e 10). Anyway, I have re-uploaded the file and updated the link. 😀
