This is a two part look at "O Rei" and his musical output.   Part One:

Pele scores the winner at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico

Like every other footballer (it seems) even the best of them can’t resist and Pelé does indeed sing.

He likes his smooth jazz, but what he likes even more is doing duets. In 1969 he teamed up with Elis Regina, one of Brazil’s most popular singers and released this single:

Pele single » Pelé & Elis Regina -Perdão Não Tem

» Pelé & Elis Regina – Vexamao

– In 1977 there was a documentary made (one of many) and an accompanying soundtrack album with the score being composed by that Sergio Mendes chap…

The title track was composed (as was the two tracks above) and sung – once again a duet – by Pele:

Pele soundtrack cover » Pelé & Gracinha Leporace – Meu Mundo E Uma Bola (My World Is A Ball)

But it doesn’t end there !   Coming up next: Pelé solo.
