Another bittersweet bossa nova from the pen of Antonio Carlos Jobim is this one, originally titled 'Insensatez', which means 'unwise' or 'foolish'. American lyricist Norman Gimbel chose to stay close to the sound of the original title, but not its meaning. He wrote lyrics that are poignant and filled with yearning for what might have been. During the 1960s the songs semed to flow from Jobim as easily as April skies deliver rain. Now, more than 15 years and at least two musical style changes later, they arfe still as fresh and melodic as they were on first hearing.
