Two great Brazilian songs in English - Faroeste Caboclo & Ouro de Tolo
About a week ago I saw this material I`m sharing now. It`s two of the greatest songs ever written/sang in Portuguese! Ever!
The first is Faroeste Caboclo from the band Legião Urbana. Take a look here. The page show the lyrics in English and a whole history around, how ware the moment the song was created, a lot of from where came this peace of Brazilian art.
The second one that I would like to share is called "Ouro de Tolo" from the singer Raul Seixas, a truly myth here in Brazil, such a genius in music this composer ware.
As you may know, I`m a programmer, I work most in web projects, but not only. This area is a mess! Each day you have to recycle what you know in many ways. The thing is, a knowledge that change so often can`t afford wait to be translated to Portuguese for instance, at that time, the known will be already deprecated. English to me is a functional requirement. I can`t imagine my daily life without it. I have been studding English for serious since 2009. In this section you can see what I`m working on. Have fun as I do.
