    It is a beautiful song. I learned a nice fingerstyle guitar arrangement of it many years ago in college, but I don't remember it now, and I can't find the sheet music. Luiz Bonfa was one of the pioneers of bossa nova, a great composer, and a fantastic guitarist. The 1959 film 'Black Orpheus', loosely based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, features the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa, and is definitely worth seeing. It helped kick off the bossa nova craze in the United States during the early 1960s.

    Vince Guaraldi made a GREAT album, "Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus". Not to be missed.

    This is a haunting song that I had forgotten about. I found the movie and also the chords for the song. Is there a different English name for this song. It seems to me there is.

    Also called "A Day In The Life Of A Fool". Not sure how that came to be since it was written before I was born.

    'A Day in the Life of a Fool' is the same tune as 'Manha de Carnaval', but with completely different lyrics, written in English by songwriter/lyricist Carl Sigman.
