Did They Wear Thongs on Ipanema Beach Back When This Song Came Out in '64?-)🌊🏖

I never really knew where Ipanema was until I saw the sad news that Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto, best known for her English-language cameo on The Girl from Ipanema, has died at age 83.
I knew where Rio was though, not that I have been there.
Ipanema thongs
In Australia when we talk about wearing thongs on the beach, we are usually talking footwear, not a string bikini bottom that leaves not much to the imagination:-)
My Aussie thongs, which were
made in China
I'll have to get me a new pair of thongs now that I know what
upside-down pineapples mean:-)
But I won't be forking out anything over a pineapple ($50 Australian) for them like some of those flash Ipanema thongs.
