I Want To Go To Brazil - Torren yö
Lets' hear another one from Frederik, and at the same time respond to a request long overdue. Frederik recorded "Torren yö" (The night in Torre(molinos)) in 1979 for his album "Tsingis khan". It was not released as a single but it's still fine piece of music, Frederik-style. The lyrics are this time by Raul Reiman. The original comes from an unexpected singer, Johnny Logan. The Irish man Johnny was (and is) known hor his strong ballads, but obviously he recorded other kind of material, too. This "I Want To Go To Brazil" was written by often finnpicked composer Roberto Danova. The song was included in the 1979 album "Johnny Logan" and represents Johnny's foray into disco sound.
