If you haven't seen the film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (directed by Wes Anderson, starring Bill Murray, 2004) then you should see it at least for the film's soundtrack. The main tracks are performed by Brazilian-born Seu Jorge; they're all popular David Bowie songs sung in Brazilian Portuguese and accompanied by an acoustic guitar. WHAT? Sounds like it would be incredible, right? WELL IT IS. He gives each song a completely different feeling than Bowie originally intended. They're mostly sung in Jorge's low, soothing voice as he gently strums on his guitar. You can tell immediately which songs he's covering, but it's the new style that makes you feel like Jorge is making sweet, gentle love to each song, and it's a match made in heaven.
You can also catch Seu Jorge acting in the film as Pelé dos Santos. He's been in a couple other films, the most notable being City of God as Mané Galinha. He also has a couple of albums out of his original music: Samba Esporte Fino (2001, or "Carolina", 2003), Cru ("Raw", 2005).
Below are just a few of the songs from the soundtrack. Check it.
