Annabelle - Haaveillen

Eija Sinikka (b. Eija Kovanen) started her recording career in 1970. During the 70's she recorded mostly Finnish schlager music, especially Finnish national dance music "humppa". But once in awhile she cut some pop songs as well. This recording from the year 1974, "Haaveillen" (Dreaming) was one of those. It was released as a single but failed to gain momentum in the charts. Eija Sinikka is still gigging actively. The original song was written and performed by English singer and songwriter Daniel Boone (of "Beautiful Sunday" fame, see earlier Finnpick, here). You can see Daniel perform the German version of the song, here.

Here's the pair:
