Angie Baby - Angie baby

Cascade was an ambitious pop group - active in years 1974-1977 - performing mainly soul- and rhythm & blues numbers. The founding members and main vocalists were Ami Aspelund (see earlier entry), Aimo Jaara, (see earlier entry), Marjo-Riitta Kervinen (see earlier entry) and Kari Kuusamo. Cascade released "Angie baby" on the B-side of their second single in 1975. The song earned another Finnish version - using same Finnish lyrics by Chrisse Johansson - by Päivi Paunu, who recorded it in 1976. The original "Angie Baby", was written by American songwriter Alan O'Day and it was a number one US hit for Australian singer Helen Reddy. It hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the end of December of 1974. The song depicts somewhat 'crazy' girl living in a dream world of lovers, inspired by the songs on her radio.

Here's the triplet:
