My World Keeps Getting Smaller Every Day - Sun kanssas kohtaan huomisen
Fredi concludes our "time" -related mini series. He recorded "Sun kanssas kohtaan huomisen" (I'll face tomorrow with you) in 1970. It was released as a single on the B-side of "Sympatiaa" (see ealier entry). This beautiful ballad was put into words by Matti Siitonen, i.e. Fredi himself. The Master of Melody, Neil Sedaka (together with his songwriting partner Howard Greenfield), was responsible for the original song "My World Keeps Getting Smaller Every Day". It was written especially for Eydie Gorme, who took it to number 24 in the US Adult Contemporary Chart in 1070. But we present here Neil's own heartrending version.
