[Listen] Monday Studying With Seu Jorge

When you hear the name, Seu Jorge, most would think of lively, Brazilian music filled with heavy strumming of the classical guitar and Spanish rambling. But there is a soft side to this talented musician as well, and for some odd reason, the only thing that seems to bring out that soft side is David Bowie.

Seu Jorge has been in several films, both American and Brazilian (including one of my all time favorites, City of God). Another, possibly more familiar title, is The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. In this film, Jorge not only played a part, but also recorded the entire soundtrack, most of which consisted of David Bowie covers. The soundtrack has been in my library for a while now and I thought I’d share it seeing it as appropriate for the coming school week, which for me, at least, will be full of studying. So if your week is looking to be the same, I only hope that the Seu Jorge will help with his soothing, Spanish gibberish. And if that’s not the case, I still don’t see any reason not to sit back and relax during your work-free week with this guy. Enjoy.
