Darling - Haavein
On the B-side of Mirumaru's yesterday's finnpick "Tää me osataan" was another Baccara -cover "Haavein" (With dreams), but we don't pick that version now. There were three versions of that song made in 1978; By Mirumaru, Mami and Bon Bon. We present here the Bon Bon version. They were a female vocal duo (of course) and consisted of Nina Keres and Outi Lindgren. Their career as Bon Bon was very short. They cut one album and single and that was it. Their record company planned to make them "The Baccara of Finland", but no major breakthrough came, and they called it quits. This "Haavein" was not released as a single, instead an other Baccara -cover "Koochie Koo" (as "Yksi yö"). There was an abundance of Baccara cover singles at the time! The original "Haavein" was called "Darling" and it was Baccara's fifth single, not as massive hit as the previous ones, but it definitely is one of their classics. you can see them perform the song, here.
