Thanks, subby
I've been trying to get this greenlit for a year.

Probably the best thing I've seen in a long while.

I don't have 33 minutes to devote to this. Can you give the readers digest version? Maybe when I have some quiet time

Playing it in the key of F instead of Db (as it was written) is a American abomination if the song.

This was amazing, thanks subby.

That was a lot more interesting than I was expecting! I've been composing, playing, and singing most of my life, but I've never had any formal music education, save for a year playing clarinet in 4th grade, so the technical parts were well over my head. Also, I've always loved the chord progressions in this song.

Haven't heard that one. I absolutely love the 70's brazillian prog\rock scene.
My personal top 10 albums from that country

Secos Y Molhados
Novos Baianos
Modulo 1000
O Terco
Casa Des Manaquinas.
Som Nosso de Cada Dia
Som Imaginario
Tutti Frutti
A Barca do Sol
A Bolha


Some amazing stuff.

The first commercial recording was in 1962, by Pery Ribeiro. The Stan Getz recording featuring the vocal debut of Astrud Gilberto became an international hit.
The key the song is played in traditionally has varied depending upon the origin of the recording. While the original Ribeiro version was in the key of G, most Brazilian performances use D♭ and most American versions use F.

From here and here.

Same here, but I managed to hang on through that part and holy sh*t that was fascinating.

Adam Neely's channel is very interesting. His video about "Giant Steps" put together some thing I didn't understand about jazz composition as a classical musician. I'd recommend that one highly as well.

Sideways, Ben Levin and Nahre Sol are also very interesting channels about music theory and composition.

To confuse matters even more, the Muzak version played in that clip is in "C".

Yep
Just a quick recap on my part from watching the ten minutes of that video i could. I work in a performing arts center and i sit through a ton of lectures from conductors talking about  composition and hidden innuendo and jokes  in stuff.
I wonder what the 7-string guitar had to do with the composition and key signature. Is that last string a "drop" Db?

detonator: composition and hidden innuendo and jokes


A modern example:
B.B.B.F.F. (Big Brother Best Friend Forever) is a song that is featured in the episode A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1. Twilight Sparkle first sings it when she explains to her friends that her brother, Shining Armor, was the only pony she trusted as a friend before she was sent to Ponyville. Later in the episode, when she was afraid she had "lost a brother" because of an argument, she sings a somber, much shorter reprise.

The song's composer, Daniel Ingram, used a cadence known as a "deceptive cadence" rather than an "authentic cadence" to finish the reprise as an "inside joke". The non-reprisal version ends on an authentic cadence, D flat major, rather than a deceptive one (B flat minor).

From here.

It's relatively new. I think they added it last year but, aside from some of the longer form essayists, so few people seem to use it.

Meh. It's still elevator music to me.

Mrs Clam's mom was from Ipanema, so I like to torment her with this song. I have about 30 different covers of it.

I banged a chick from El Segundo. This song has been stuck in my head ever since. It was Halloween and she was dressed like a gypsy. That Fleetwood Mac song is also stuck in my head and they meld together. CSB

Cool. I watched that last month and can confirm that it's really interesting.

I'm not a Bossa Nova fan and my music theory-fu is not strong, but I couldn't stop watching it.

Well worth the time.
