Forget domani - Ei ajatella huomispäivää
Eija Merilä (see earlier entry) recorded "Ei ajatella huomispäivää" (Let's not think about tomorrow) in 1965. It was not a big hit, but definitely worth of re-listening. The melody and the hook line is bound to be stuck in your head. The original song was called "Forget Domani" and was introduced on the soundtrack of the movie "The Yellow Rolls-Royce", starrring Ingrid Bergman, Rex Harrison and Shirley MacLaine. The perky song was written by famous Italian composer Rizero "Riz" Ortolani. The english lyrics were made by Norman Newell and the late great Frank Sinatra recorded it 1965, making it one of his biggest hits in the 60's. The song tells us to take each day as it comes and to be in love, because when you're in love, tomorrow never comes.
