Bebel Gilberto Covers The Eurythmics

Arjanwritesbgilberto

Here's something a little different.

Famed Brazilian songstress Bebel Gilberto released an exclusive iTunes Live Sessions EP on which she covers The Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" and Grace Jones' "Slave To The Rhytm." Gilberto's acoustic renditions of these classics is unusual and arguably a bit to peculiar for '80s fans to love, but the singer's smooth and sultry delivery makes definitely for something interesting and worth checking out. Sample the songs and download the EP on iTunes.

Gilberto is a great singer. If you find this sort of Brazilian take on classics, you should check out Seu Jorge's version of David Bowie classics. Well, everything Seu Jorge does is worth listening...
