Judy Min Vän - Judy-ystäväin
It's six days to Eurovision Song Contest Final. We began our journey with past years' Eurosong covers from the year 1969. Johnny recorded "Judy-ystäväin" (My friend Judy) which was a version of Sweden's Eurovision entry of that year. It was called "Judy Min Vän" (Judy my friend) and performed by Tommy Körberg. Tommy has been finnpicked before, see entry here. He made also an English version called "Dear Mr. Jones", and you can hear it here. In ESC the song got three votes from Norway and Finland, and 9 votes in total. It was enough to tie the 9th position with Siw Malmkvist's "Prima Ballerina" (this one already finnpicked, see previous entry).
