Beautiful lover - Paras
Let's take another "Paras" -song. Paula Koivuniemi (see previous entry) released this tune called simply "Paras" (The Best) as a B-side of a single in 1978. The single sold well and perhaps this song had something to do with it. The original was a sizeable hit for Brotherhood Of Man, a British pop group who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976 with "Save Your Kisses for Me. "Beautiful Lover" was released In May 1978 and reached the UK top 20. The group was formed by record producer & composer Tony Hiller and, he wrote this song, too.
