Marisa Monte sings "Bem Que Se Quis"

I just love to hear her sing! This is a live performance from 1988.

The audio on the video above is very slightly delayed. Go to this link for better picture quality video, but the audio way behind the picture: http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=Jwl2efZPX8A

Just found your page via Joe Sharkey's blog (which I have been following for quite some time).

Marisa Montes is one of my favorites as well.

Wow, Andrew! Your blog is so sophisticated. I don't know how to do any of that stuff you do. Joe Sharkey's posts can sometimes be a scream, and at other times they are very inflammatory, unfortunately. He hasn't seen much of the best of Brazil. Take care, Tenney

Sorry, just realized that you responded to my comment.

I wish I could take credit for my blog, but any "sophistication" is due to a friend of mine who does not want me to embarass myself on the internet.

I agree with you about Joe Sharkey, too bad he will never be able to see Brazil like we see it.

Aside from the families of the victims, I really feel for the pilots. I knew they were in for a ride when, the day after the accident, a Brazilian friend of mine expressed the hope that the Americans would "learn that they can't just do acrobatics over Brazilian airspace"--before any investigation had been done. So much for innocent until proven guilty.

I really enjoy your blog--keep up the good work.

Hi! Thank you so much for your kind remarks. I wish I had such a "sophisticated" friend, but I am sort of in the middle of nowhere here in the interior of Bahia, so I have to learn it all myself.

You know, it is a good thing that Joe Sharkey was on that plane, otherwise, it would be going a lot worse for the pilots, I think.

There are many people who still believe that the pilots were doing stunts, which goes against all common sense when you consider that the plane had both ExcelAire and Embraer executives on board.

I think that Mr. Sharkey is coming to see that this country has its good and bad points, just like the U.S.

The whole thing is a huge pity that might have been prevented if many people had been more professional, and I am talking about all of them.

For example, the two pilots with no experience here could have expressed their own doubts about their ability to fly here (maybe they did this, who knows?), but it is a known fact that men do not like to display their weaknesses. I keep wondering who made that decision to use only U.S. pilots who had never flown here. I think it must have been their bosses.

And, here, perhaps I will upset some people, but I honestly think that a woman would not have made such a decision.

We use far less bravado and more foresight.

But, of course, I am generalizing.

Best regards, Tenney
