Twist In My Sobriety - Rakkauden muistomerkki

This piece of music is among my favourite songs of the 80's. Meiju Suvas recorded "Rakkauden muistomerkki" (Monument of love) in 1989. It was released on her album "Sydän tietää" and also as a single, being a minor hit for her. The Finnish lyrics were written by Turkka Mali. The original song "Twist In My Sobriety" was a worldwide hit fot Tanita Tikaram. Tanita was a British pop/folk singer who startedperforming in nightclubs while she was still a teenager, and made her debut album "Ancient Heart" in 1988 when she was oly 19 years old. This "Twist" was the second single release - the first one was "Good Tradition" - from that album. Tanita got her exotic name and looks from a Malaysian mother and a Fijian father.

Here's the pair:
