    Thanks Last.fm for correcting Spotify's incorrectly credited "Jorge Ben Jor" stuff to "Jorge Ben" as it should be. "He had adopted the Jorge Ben Jor moniker to avoid being confused with George Benson, who once had some money deposited is his checking account for payment of a Jorge Ben's European tour." Really, how do you screw something like that up so bad that a guy has to change his name? Did George Benson ever make it right and pay Jorge his money?

    Ele chegou descontraído Chegou filosofando num tom de voz meio angelical Falando das coisas belas E das coisas simples Mostrando como o belo pode ser simples E o simples pode ser belo
