Article Quality[edit]

The article did not exactly read to me like an advertisement, but it was not of a good quality. I tried the best I could to bring it to a higher standard, but there isn't much on the web that I could find regarding Ipanema that's not trying to sell me a vacation there. It is better than it was previously, at least. --Gloriamarie 16:15, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

  • It does not read especially like an advertisement to me, either. I have removed the advert tag. --jackohare 07:09, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

it reads like an advertisement because its alot more exciting then your "hometown USA"..

The person who commented about the "hometown USA"- shut up. There is no need for this on Wikipedia. Go back to 4chan! 24.129.235.151 (talk) 05:17, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Ipanema, Copacabana[edit]

Ipanema is north or south of Copacabana?CorvetteZ51 (talk) 13:34, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

It is west of Copacabana, since the Atlantic coast is oriented in an east-west direction at this location. However, it is south of Copa. in the sense that if you followed the coastline from Copa. through Ipanema and beyond, you would eventually be southbound. 67.173.10.34 (talk) 08:50, 1 August 2010 (UTC)Larry Siegel

The line "Its popularity has seen a resurgence with Diana Krall's song "Boy from Ipanema" released in 2008." is unsourced. Moreover, does 'it' refer to the song ('Girl form Ipanema') or the place, Ipanema. Both are referenced in the paragraph. Onanoff (talk) 12:57, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Referring to "Boy from Ipanema" as "Diana Krall's song" (2008) also seems random, since it's an old standard that was previously a hit by Peggy Lee (1964), Ella Fitzgerald (1965), and Shirley Bassey (1966). Women always sing the "boy" version, of course. It was even done on the Muppet Show by Petula Clark as late as 1977. Not sure what "popularity has seen a resurgence" would actually mean, anyway. I think this should be removed - it seems like some ignorant person's opinion. Meanwhile, I am going to update the [The Girl from Ipanema] article, which currently claims (internally inconsistent) that the "boy" version of the song originated from a 2009 musical...sheesh, kids!
