To All The Girls I've Loved Before - Te rakkaat, luotain lähteneet
This finnpick is to honor Topi Sorsakoski, who sadly passed away last Saturday. Topi and Reijo Taipale recorded an album called "Kulkukoirat" in 1992. This "Te rakkaat, luotain lähteneet" (You loved ones, who have left me) was the final track of the album and it was also released on the B-side of the "Kulkukoirat" single. The song "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" was a 1984 Top 10 hit for duo Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson, and it was a breakthrough for Iglesias in the English language market. Youn can see them perform the song live, here. However, we present here the original version by our old friend Albert Hammond.
