Keep It Coming

the more, the merrier

Samba esporte fino

Posted by keepitcoming on January 24, 2006

The release of Seu Jorge‘s The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions was a dream come true for those who had hunted high and low for his acoustic, Portuguese-language David Bowie covers. Soundtracks were bought, DVDs were ripped, letters were sent, and then it happened. But (there’s always a but), the CD version was missing one essential track, released only as an iTunes exclusive. I don’t know where that version comes from, as it is quieter than the rest, but it was worth tracking down as it perfectly compliments the disc.

  • Seu Jorge “Space Oddity… Performs David Bowie, 2005

Before Wes Anderson exposed him to public scrutiny, Seu Jorge was already an accomplished musician, having released two albums, including Cru (raw) in 2004. Here he tackles one of the few widely acknowledged musical geniuses from France, the late great Serge Gainsbourg.

    It looks like your Space Oddity link is dead. Can you please repost it or email me the mp3?
