Garoto de Ipanema? You Be the Judge

When Prime Minister Berlusconi called President-Elect Obama “handsome, young and also suntanned”, do you think he was referencing The Girl from Ipanema, as in:
Tall and tan and young and lovely?
He did work his way through college as a singing waiter.

ADD: An incredible take by Ella Fitzgerald, live on stage. She segues into Fly Me to the Moon, which I understand also carries deep, Astrud Gilberto associations.
