"Girl from Impanema" has been my favorite song for a long, long time! I couldn’t believe it when I saw several people here mention it.

I actually looked for years for the version I loved the most, but couldn’t find it because there were so many versions and I didn’t have a clue who sang the version I liked most. A DJ at a local club was playing it one night and I went immediately to find out who the singer was. It was the Astrud Gilberto version. The DJ turned me on to Stan Getz as well.

Two others I absolutely love are "Would You Like to Swing on a Star" and "Never Never Land" (I like the Todd Rundgren version best).
