Lady Bump - Lady Bump
Anita Hirvonen recorded "Lady Bump" in 1976 and it was released as a single on the flip side of Abba cover "Mamma Mia". The lyrics were provided by Chrisse Johansson. In the same year also vocal duo Koivistolaiset made their version of the song, and interestingly, it was on the flip side of another Abba cover "S.O.S". The original "Lady Bump" came from German disco scene. Penny McLean (born Gertrude Wirschinger, in Austria) had a smash hit with it in 1975. Penny was at the time also a member in the succesful German vocal trio Silver Convention. The song was produced by Michael Kunze, who wrote also the lyrics (as pseudonym Stephan Prager) and arranged by Sylvester Levay, who in turn composed "Lady Bump". You can see Penny perform the song, here.
