Notes: ~ Guitarist Luiz Bonfa and composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, who both rose
o fame during the bossa nova craze of the 1960s, collaborated on the score
to the gorgeous Brazilian film 'Black Orpheus.' This haunting melody was the
movie's leitmotif; it threaded through the story of Orfeo and Eurydice and
was heard in a variety of contexts. When English lyrics were written for it,
the song became 'A Day in the Life of a Fool,' the sad, wan story of
a dejected lover. And that's what Perry sings here very movingly, with
chorus and orchestra and a gentle bossa nova beat.
