Sing Along With The Jukebox - Tanssi kanssani hiljaa
We continue in the company of Armi Aavikko. She recorded "Tanssi kanssani hiljaa" (Dance with me slowly) in 1981 as most of her solo output. It was only an album track, but deserves to be remembered. The arranger - as with almost all Armi's recordings - was Veikko Samuli, who is an excellent Finnish arranger and songwriter. The original was again done by Ottawan on their 1980 album and the song was written - again - by Vangarde and Kluger.
