Carolina - Carolina

Let's hear another song about a girl named Carolina. Eddy (b. Tapani Lehikoinen) recorded "Carolina" in 1972 and it was released as the B-side of the single "Pappa Joe", finnpicked earlier (see here).
The Finnish lyrics to "Carolina" were done by Vexi Salmi. The original "Carolina" came from Sweden. The song was a minor hit for Hep Stars in 1972. At the time the group had gone a long way from their mid-60's heydays. Only one original member remained, and eventually the band folded in 1973. This "Carolima" song was written by the Indonesian-born member of the 70's Hep Stars, Kookie Tian.

Here's the pair:
