Can't Stop Myself From Loving You - En liepeisiis jää roikkumaan

This is a requested song and a good one at that. ELF (Eric Lars Four) recorded the song "En liepeisiis jää roikkumaan" (I will not be hanging in your apron strings) in 1976. It was released as a single (on B-side), but didn't get much notice. The original song was written by the famous Australian songwrting duo Harry Vanda and George Young, who also became famous as the members of the group Easybeats. In 1974 it was recorded by an Aussie named Johnny Cave, who used noble stage name William Shakespeare. It was Shakespeare's first hit in Australia, reaching number 2 in the charts.

Here's the pair:

Thanks for quick response ;)

In my opinion, this is the ELF:s best.
I wonder, why it not reach list in Finland like original, (witch is also good), did in Australia.
