Seu Jorge & David Bowie

Michele has been watching The Life Aquatic DVD on auto-repeat these days.

She's been listening to the soundtrack album as well and was raving about the Bowie songs that Seu Jorge had covered. I gave a listen, and she's right, it's great.

Seu Jorge is a popular Brazilan musician who played the character Pelé dos Santos in The Life Aquatic. He sings during the film and those songs are on the soundtrack album. For some reason, what he sings are Portuguese versions of David Bowie songs.

As a long time Bowie listener, I can basically sing along in English to his Portuguese versions. I guess his versions became so popular, that he came out with an album soley of his covers of Bowie songs. We got the CD yesterday and it's wonderful.

Do yourself a favor and give it a listen, it's good stuff.
