True track 3: “Mas Que Nada” by Sergio Mendes(Black Eyed Peas Cover)

This track was featured in the soundtrack of the famous 3D animated  movie “Rio”. “Mas Que Nada”, roughly translated to ” but, that is nothing” or “yeah,right!”, was voted the 5th best Brazilian song ever made(Courtesy:Wikipedia).

I love this song, because of the versatile instruments. The complex piano chords used in this song are not used in pop songs, and there is an elemant of freshness. In fact these chords are uniquely used for the Samba dance style. This song also reflects the Brazilian spirit and love for dance.

Those vocals, along with the non-electric sounds, make this track an all-time favorite of mine.
