Antonio Carlos Jobim Is the greatest pop music composer post-1960. No One Beats Him. Not Even The Beatles

Beats Burt by ten thousand miles. Simple, uncomplicated melodic melodies that rival Porter - think True Love....... and Berlin - Anything You Can Do...... You try making a hit song out of one note. Or the repetition of four notes arranged rhythmically to produce Waters of March, let alone The Girl From Ipanema, Wave, How Insensitive, So Dance The Samba, Water To Drink..........Want me to go on to prove my point?

Most of his stuff, although nice, sounds very samey.

And Astrud scored only ONE decent song.
