Wonderful Life - Kaunis on maailma taas

Arto Nuotio began his recording career in the start of 70's under pseudonym Aquarius. He recorded quite inferior (to put it mildly) version of "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)" and was in the hiatus for ten years. In the 80's he came back with a more adult-orientated repertoire. Arto recorded "Kaunis on maailma taas" (The world is beautiful once more) in 1991 for his album "Saari rakkauden". The song was also released as a single B-side, but the single failed to hit the charts. The original was recorded by a Liverpudlian artist called Black (real name Colin Vearncombe). It was written by his friend and musical partner David Dix. It may become as a suprise, but this was Black's SECOND Top Ten UK hit - the first one being "Sweetest Smile". Everyone remembers Black for "Wonderful Life", as it became such a huge worldwide hit. You can see the music video of the song, here.

Here's the pair:

Kirka teki samasta biisistä myös oman versionsa viimeiseksi jääneelle Elämääni eksynyt- albumilleen (2005) nimellä Muistoja, muistoja vain, jonka sanoitti Hector. Mielestäni kyllä tämä Nuotion versio on parempi kuin se kuitenkin...originaali tietysti ylittämätön...
