Please Don't Talk To The Lifeguard - Vartiomies
Markita Mattson (see earlier entry) recorded "Vartiomies" (The guardsman) in 1964 together with vocal group Four Cats. It was released on the B-side her second - which turned out to be her last - single. Unfortunately it was as unsuccessful as the first single. The original song "Please Don't Talk To The Lifeguard" was a minor hit (charted at number 31) in USA in 1963 for pop and rock and roll singer Diane Ray (not to be confused with another songstress Diane Renay). This was her one and only charted record.
