Words - Helli mua hiljaa
Mona Carita (see earlier entry) recorded "Helli mua hiljaa" (Pamper me gently) in 1983. It was one the last recordings in her short career. Shortly afterwards she moved to Canada and stopped recording. The original song was an international smash hit "Words", written by Robert Fitoussi, a Tunisian-born French singer. He also performed it himself, using his stage name F. R. David. During the early 1970s, Robert was a band member in the French rock band, Les Variations. But in 1982 he broke through as solo artist with "Words".
Updated on 17.11.2009: added Berit's version (1983).
