The Smiling Hour


And speaking of songs whose words and melodies run headlong downhill sounding as if at any point they'll fall right over themselves like a small child over bicycle handlebars we present tonight at Davy's Bar two Brazilian legends in sparkling duet - it's the first spring-like Friday post of the year, baby.

Mine's a large one, if you're going.

Antônio Carlos Jobim & Elis Regina - 'Águas de Março' (1974)

  1. I've never had a real Martini but I think that would be the soundtrack to drinking one.

    I will have a large Tanqueray & Fever Tree with lots of ice, Mr H.

    Have a good weekend.

  4. Never had a Martini Drew - try it before the year's out..

    I've got this on something or other, although not a clue what. Not a drop in the house tonight - Mrs M's out and I'm waiting for the shopping to be delivered (between 8 and 10). So may have to intercept her grenache from Tesco bag
