Garota de IpanemaVinicius de Moraes1962Original in Portuguese
Version in English: The girl from Ipanema
The English version of this song was first released in the LP "Getz/Gilberto", on MGM/Verve.

Heloísa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto is the girl from Ipanema. Tom and Vinicius de Moraes used to patron the Veloso Bar, in the Ipanema neighborhood, corner of Prudente de Morais Street and Montenegro Street (lately named Vinicius de Moraes Street). They would sit on small tables placed on the sidewalk to have some beer and chat with friends. Several times they admired Heloísa's charming walk. Living very close, she used to go to the Veloso Bar to buy cigarettes to her mother. Inspired by her beauty, Vinicius and Tom wrote "The girl from Ipanema".
The first of Vinicius' attempts to write the lyrics to Jobim's melody was unsuccessful. The song was first named "The Girls that passes by": "Tired of all many paths, without any poetry, without any birds, fearing life, fearing love, when in the afternoon, so pretty in the space, I saw the girl, strolling along, swinging her step, towards the sea."
Both partners disliked the lyrics, but approved a second version that Vinicius wrote a little later.
Heloísa only knew that she had been the inspiration for the song some two years and a half later. On May 1966, when she got married to the engineer Fernando Abel Pinheiro, Tom Jobim and her wife Thereza attended the ceremony.
Heloisa had a daughter, and became a model and TV presenter. Nowadays she can be spotted mostly in Rio and Sao Paulo, still a charming woman, who will be always remembered as the inspiring force of one of the world's most famous songs.
