Innamorato Come Un Ragazzo - Nyt tai ei koskaan
Frederik had a big hit with "Nyt tai ei koskaan" (Now or never) in 1969. It has become one of his most popular and most requested songs. The delivery and the lyrics are a good example of Frederiks first attempts in his macho style. The original was a lesser known 1968 Italian song "Innamorato Come Un Ragazzo" (In love like a boy) sung by Vasso Ovale. (b, Basilio Ovale). It was written by his father Achilles Ovale. Vasso had a couple of hits in Italy in the 60's, but he never really broke through, neither in Italy nor internationally.
