Back to the City Again - Nyt maistuu elämä taas
I've been five weeks on vacation and out of this blogworld. Now Finnpicks is back on and perhaps it's appropriate to re-start with this Kirka's song from 1979 - "Nyt maistuu elämä taas" (Now the life tastes good again). It was a modestly successful single with lyrics by Pertsa Reponen and arrangement by Veikko Samuli. The original song called "Back To The City Again", was written and performed by French superstar Jean-Jacques Goldman. Jean-Jacques abandoned his classical music studies in 1968 for "American Rock & Roll" and it really paid off, because since 2003 he has been the second-highest-grossing French living pop singer, after Johnny Hallyday.
