Signorina Concertina - Vain rakkaus sen aikaan saa
Monica Aspelund recorded "Vain rakkaus sen aikaan saa" (Only love can do it) in 1973. It was released as a single (and single only), but it gained no greater attention. Even if it should have been a hit! Monica wrote the Finnish lyrics herself. The original song "Signorina Concertina" was an euro-hit for Israeli duo Shuky & Aviva (Shuki Levy and Aviva Paz). It was their flagship song and sold more than two million copies across Europe. But the two artists experienced the most success in France. The song was written by hitmakers and our old friends Peter Yellowstone(under pseudonym Peter Papini) and Roberto Danova. You can see Shuky and Aviva perform the song, here.
