Tribalistas, Ja Sei Namorar

We are getting so close to the end, with part 98 of my youtube countdown.  Today, I have something a little more international, and why not?  After 97 songs, I’m running out of English songs!  Anyway, its a good one.  Its the song “Ja Sei Namorar” from the Brazilian group Tribalistas.  It’s a breezy poppy samba song with a catchy melody, driving rhythm, and a gorgeous backing vocal hook.  The song roughly translates to “I know how to be in love,” and the lyrics are about finding simple happiness.  That’s all according to my multi-lingual friend who is obsessed with Brazilian pop.  It’s worth noting that the last two sentences were basically copied from her email to me verbatim, which I appreciate because I don’t speak Portuguese, so hopefully she’s not lying.  Anyway, sadly, my own research indicates that Tribalistas broke up after this one record, despite it being a massive hit in Brazil and Europe, and despite them even winning a Latin Grammy.  Video game fans might also recognize the song from FIFA 2004.  Like I said, I am so close to the end, and I have the last two songs ready to go, so stayed tuned folks for the dramatic finish.  Until then enjoy this beautiful song.
