Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
