    General CommentThis is the most beautiful jazz song I've ever heard. (I'm referring to version of Joao Gilberto and Stan Getz). This is bossa nova at it's greatest. The lyrics are also marvellous. They are about the "legitimacy" of playing bossa nova. "No peito dos desafinados tambem bate um coracao": In the heart of those "out of tune" also beats a heart.
