Lost In France - Menin raiteiltain
Anneli Sari (see earlier entry) released "Menin raiteiltain" (I lost my tracks) in 1978 on the B-side of a single. The A-side was modest hit for her, but this B-side is long forgotten. Even if the original is remembered by most of us. It was called "Lost In France" and it was a big European and Australian hit for Bonnie Tyler 1976. It was written by Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe, a British songwriting and producing team, who spotted Bonnie in "The Townsman Club" in Swansea, Wales, and became her managers, songwriters, and producers.
