Ciao Bambino, Sorry - Näin on käynyt sorry
Anneli Sari (b. Anneli Lundberg) recorded "Näin on käynyt sorry" (So it goes, sorry) in 1978 on her album "Luonnonlapsi" (Nature Child). It was not released as a single, which is a pity, becouse it would have been potential hit for Anneli. Her recording career began in 1964 when she covered the Italian Eurovision winner 'Non ho l'eta" gaining substantial success. In later years she has recorded less of schlagers and pop and more of chansons and romany music. She's also performed in various stage acts and concerts. The original song was called "Il lupo e l'angello" (Wolf and angel) and it was written by our old friend Toto Cutugno. I don't know if Toto ever recorded this himself, but the hit version was made by French legend Mireille Mathieu as "Ciao Bambino, Sorry". This was most probably the version that Anneli covered.
