Summerlove Sensation - Taivaallinen nainen
Markku Aro recorded "Taivaallinen nainen" (Heavenly woman) in 1974 for his album "Oma kultasein". The lyrics for this track were provided by Jussi Tuominen, who is famous for scripting and producing several popular Finnish TV sitcoms, for example "Tankki täyteen" and "Reinikainen" (both in collaboration with Neil Hardwick). The original song was called "Summerlove Sensation" and it was one of the many hits for 'teen sensation' Bay City Rollers. You can see them perform this UK Top 3 hit, here.
