Holnap Hajnalig - Kellot käy

Eini (see earlier entry) recorded "Kellot käy" (Clocks are ticking) in 1985 on her album "Eini". (She released two albums with the name "Eini", this is the latter one). It was released also as a single, but didn't actually raise commotion. Anyway, a decent rock-ish disco-pop tune it is. The original was a Hungarian song, which are rarely covered in Finland (see one earlier example here). The song "Holnap Hajnalig" (Tomorrow sunrise) was performed by popular Hungarian pop-rock group Neoton Familia (a.k.a Newton Family), and co-written by group's frontman György Jakab. The goup was the one of the most successful Hungarian pop-bands, during several decades, with various line-ups. It was most active from 1977 to 1989, releasing albums and touring in several countries. You can see the band performing "Holnap Hajnalig" live, here.

Here's the pair:
