It's bossa nova, I suppose, but it transcends genres. Watch the YouTube video to see the interaction between the singers, then play this tune whenever you want to remember a moment of happiness at being alive.

This is a wonderful recording of this song, maybe the best I have, because it is Jobim and Elis simply playing and singing. You hear the joy in their voices, especially nearing the end, when they are playing with each other, almost laughing, almost like foreplay. The whole album, Elis and Tom, offers this kind of intimacy, but especially this song.
