I Still Believe In Tomorrow - Yhä virta venhettä kantaa
As I have stated before Danny was brilliant in finding hidden gems to record. "Yhä virta venhettä kantaa" (The boat still rolls on the river) was one of those. It was released as a single in 1970. The original tune was called "I Still Believe In Tomorrow" and perfomed by a duo called John & Anne Ryder. Unfortunately I know nothing about them. The song was a minor hit for the couple in UK in 1969. The song still gets plenty of requests, described as "flower pop/psych" and as "a breakup song with rather anguished male-female vocal harmonies and a great horn arrangement." BTW, the song was co-written by Marty Wilde, father of Kim Wilde.
