The Sea-Fare Folk - Hei oo mennään taas
Juhamatti (see earlier entry) recorded this catchy disco romp "Hei oo mennään taas" in 1980 to the lyrics of Raul Reiman. It was released as a single and was a minor hit. The song uses (as does the original) extracts from the familiar song "Drunken Sailor". The original song was a 1979 disco hit from Germany, titled "The Sea-Fare Folk". It was performed by Cherry Laine and written by her producer Bernt Möhrle. We have presented the works of this couple before, here and here.
