BOYS FROM BRASIL 66

Depending on how old of a bachelor you are, you may have listened to the smooth cool sounds of Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66 when their albums first came out in the sixties, or you may have discovered them later as a younger fan of bossa nova and samba music.

If this isn’t classic bachelor pad music, it sure as hell will do, until that one comes along.

Makes you want to put on the turtleneck, the double breasted cardigan, light up a pipe, put on the phones, lean back in the recliner, and chill out as a way cool VIP bachelor.

It just doesn’t get better than Lani Hall, and the rest of the gang as they belt out bossa nova hits for sophisticated bachelor ears.

In the GREATEST HITS album, you can enjoy (and perhaps reminisce) to such songs as “Mais Que Nada”, “Scarborough Fair”, “Like a Lover”, “The Fool on the Hill”, “So Many Stars” and “Pretty World” and more.

You will enjoy their music mais que nada! Give a listen and hear for yourself.

THE SOUND OF BOND MUSIC

Whether you are a VIP bachelor already, or aspiring to become one, reality reveals that a good portion of life is rather fucking boring. Humdrum.  A snore.

So how do we pimp up the ho hum hours, the mundane moments?  One good step in the VIP direction is to get a soundtrack to back up the boring.

Now, I think we can agree that James Bond would be a VIP bachelor.  He had a soundtrack. He always had one, so why not us?

Put some music to what you are doing whenever practical. Commuting in the car? Have the appropriate CD playing. Putting the night’s dinner in the microwave? Do it to the right tune.

Try this. Watch a segment of a Bond film when he’s not fornicating or fighting, and turn the sound off. Not even half as cool is it?

So–soundtrack it.

How do you choose? How do you “Bond” with your soundtrack?

It depends on when you bonded with Bond.      Obviously you can use music from the films, but you also want to use music similar to the times and moods of the films.

If you signed on in the Connery years, we’re talking jazz, calypso, “cocktail” and “lounge” music.

If you got the photo in the eighties (heaven forbid) maybe you’re talking Duran Duran. It’s a matter of personal choice of course.

The point is when doing the dull you can get more dum da da dum dum style with accompanying music.

Here are a few CD recommendations for your review:
