Think It All Over - Auringonpistos
Pirjo Lehti is a Finnish schlager singer who was active mostly in the 1970s and 1980s. However she released her first single in 1969 and it was called "Auringonpistos" (Sunstroke). It didn't do anything chartwise, but anyway, launched a long career for Pirjo. The original song "Think It All Over" was written by Chris Andrews, whom we have met earlier as a performer (see here). The song was performed by British Pop Princess Sandie Shaw and it was the single number 22 for Sandie, and the last one to be written by Andrews. The song was influenced by the German oompah bands that were popular at the time. The single peaked just outside the UK Top 40.
