Who needs forever  performed by  Astrud Gilberto  (1967)
Composed by Jones
Arranged by Jones
From: USA
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Sunday 24th June 2001

Quincy Jones is renowned more for his great arrangements than for his melodies, but I think this tune, from the soundtrack to 'the deadly affair' is really great. It's a slow bossa with a haunting lyric. Astrud sings in her trademark cool, detached style. I never grow tired of hearing this one. Astrud seems to have made a few impromptu appearances on film soundtracks, and I'm always on the lookout for more; one other great one was the Ennio Morricone score 'casse' (burglars), on which she sings two tracks.

from The Deadly Affair (Soundtrack)
available on CD - The Pawnbroker/The Deadly Affair

Other Versions: Astrud sings and organ/bossa version, available on the reissue CD of the LP she did with Walter Wanderley
