Min dröm om frihet - Rakastan jokaista päivää
Anneli Pasanen's most popular song was perhaps "Rakastan jokaista päivää" (I love each and every day) released in 1976. Words for this most optimistic song were written by Chrisse Johansson. The original song cane from our neighbouring country Sweden and was a big hit for the forefather of all Swedish dance bands - Vikingarna (The Vikings). The band was formed already in 1958 and disbanded in 2004, but announced their comeback now in March 2011, however, with only two original members remaining. They are the best-selling "dansband" in Scandinavian music history, and had at the time of their disbanding sold more than 11 million records. This song "Min dröm om frihet" (My dream of freedom) was composed by Torgny Söderberg, who also wrote Herreys 1984 Euorovision winner "Diggi-loo, Diggi-ley".
