Respiração (no Ar)

Pink Floyd's Breathe (In the Air) makes a great bossa nova tune when played with the right rhythm (I don't think I got it quite right, though). It's chock-full of minor9, seventh, sus and Maj7 chords that just cry out for re-interpretation. I think the closest the Floyd ever got to a soft jazz vibe was in St Tropez and Biding My Time.

And yes, I'm singing in a ridiculous gay/fey voice as a nod to Astrud Gilberto.
