Sad Sweet Dreamer - Niinkin sattuu
Päivi Paunu recorded "Niinkin sattuu" (That's what can happen) in 1975 to the lyrics by Sauvo "Saukki" Puhtila. The song was never released as a single, And it was not included in any of Päivi's albums. It was released only on of "Maailmalla soi" hit cover compilations. So, sadly this beautiful song is forgotten by all.. The original song was the sole big hit for Brtish vocal group Sweet Sensation. "Sad Sweet Dreamer " reached number one in UK charts in 1974. This soul ballad is heavily influenced by the Stylistics, and led by lead vocalist Marcel King's falsetto, . The song was produced by Tony Hatch and David Parton (aka Des Parton) . Parton aslo wrote the song. You can see the group perform "Sad Sweet Dreamer ", here.
