Tout,tout doucement - Tule jo kotiin
We conclude this mini-series of "leaving" songs with a "coming back" song and with another one by Tapani Kansa. He recorded "Tule jo kotiin" (Come back home) in 1983 for his album "Tässä ja nyt". The lyrics were provided by Vexi Salmi. The album broke several years hiatus of recording, but after this album it took several years before Tapani recorded pop music again. The original song "Tout, tout doucement" (All softly) was written by Frenchman Jean Jacques Goldman under pseudonym 'Sweet memories'. The song was a minor hit in France for songstress named Jane Surrey. I know nothing about Jane, but I guess she was an English woman, becouse this song was recorded in London.
