Elis Regina

A stick, a stone, it’s the end of the road”… the England football team fall again. The opening line of ‘Aguas de Março’ is embedded in Brazilian popular music. It helps that the song was composed and first released by bossa nova legend Antonio Carlos Jobim, then covered by Elis Regina for the album Elis in 1972, and ultimately by both Elis and Tom Jobim in 1974. I chose Regina’s solo version because I think she brings out the purity of the song. A sublime end to a week touched by disappointment. Have a great weekend.
