A minha menina

Finishing this lesson you're already able to understand the first part of this semi-classic Brazilian track! http://youtu.be/qMU_OmPLsPU Those lyrics are: -- Ela é minha menina / E eu sou o menino dela / Ela é o meu amor / E eu sou o amor todinho dela

That's awesome! Music is always one of the best ways to immerse oneself in a language. Thanks!

Intro: "Tosse, todo mundo tossindo!". Translation: "Cough, everybody coughing!" Lol wut?

Hey, thanks for posting that! It's certainly different from the music I'm used to.

sorry didn't know you were a guy

Classis one from the 60s, really famous in brazil! I think the cough part is related to the heavy drug use in that time ;)

Cool! But there's one song in Portuguese I'm particularly interested in. For now I can't get the lyrics straight and there's no lyrics on the web. Can anyone please help me? I'd love to be able to sing it right.^) Altinho Clemida – Recordação

Ela é minha menina E eu sou o menino dela Ela é o meu amor E eu sou o amor todinho dela

A lua prateada se escondeu E o sol dourado apareceu Amanheceu um lindo dia Cheirando a alegria Pois eu sonhei E acordei pensando nela

Pois ela é minha menina E eu sou o menino dela Ela é o meu amor E eu sou o amor todinho dela

A roseira já deu rosas E a rosa que eu ganhei foi ela Por ela eu ponho o meu coração Na frente da razão E vou dizer Pra todo mundo Como gosto dela

Pois ela é minha menina E eu sou o menino dela Ela é o meu amor E eu sou o amor todinho dela

A lua prateada se escondeu E o sol dourado apareceu Amanheceu um lindo dia Cheirando alegria Pois eu sonhei E acordei pensando nela

Pois ela é minha menina E eu sou o menino dela Ela é o meu amor E eu sou o amor todinho dela Minha menina Minha menina...

The worth of learning another language is to better appreciate the grand, wondrous world we all live in; colored with people and their music. Tropicalia and bossa novas have as much to do with my interest in learning Portuguese as much as anything else.

Thank you for sharing.

excellent !!! I like duolingo

Unfortunately it has been delete now, so I haven't been able to see it. Does anyone know the name and/or artist of the song?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chetinho

It's a song by Os Mutantes.

Thanks, I updated the link! The song is A Minha Menina, the band is Os Mutantes. They were part of a Brazilian counter-cultural movement in the 60s called 'Tropicália' that experimented with diversity (and substances ;)) on many levels. Their debut is an amazing fuzzy psychedelic collage of tunes that blends bossa nova with foreign styles, which results in an incredibly fun record!
