Os Diagonais - Nao Vou Chorar

This has to be one of my all time favorite feel-good songs. Actually, the entire compilation album that it's on, Black Rio 2 - Original Samba Soul 1968-1981, is one groovy, funk-filled, happy-fest.

I googled the album to get a link only to learn that the DJ who mixed it is from London! AND he's performing this Saturday night in Notting Hill for a "Super Brazil Mash-Up Session!" Okay, who's in town and wants to boogie?
