Girls Talk - Anna lämpösi loistaa
Our frequent Finnpick artist Taiska recorded "Anna lämpösi loistaa" (Let your warmth be shining) in 1980. It was on her album "Villi vapauden kaipuu" and it was also released as a single, on the b-side of her original hit song "Hiroshima". This finnpicked song came UK and was written by Elvis Costello and it was a big hit for another British rocker Dave Edmunds (actually he was Welsh) in 1979. The hit single was culled from his album "Repeat When Necessary". You can see Dave with his group Rockpile perform the song, here.
