All We Need Is Love - Voitko rakastaa
One of the forgotten and overlooked Katri Helena songs is this "Voitko rakastaa" (Can you love) that was released as a single in 1978. On the flipside was Katri-Helena's cover of the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978. This "Voitko rakastaa" really deserved to be a hit (but wasn't). The Finnish lyrics were done by Pertsa Repoonen. The original song "All We Need Is Love" was written by our old friends Roberto Danova and Peter Yellowstone. And it was performed by British disco songstress Kelly Marie (of the 1977 "Feels Like I'm In Love" fame). We have finnpicked Kelly Marie before, see here. For some reason this "All We Need Is Love" was released only in France and Germany, not in UK. You can see Kelly Marie perform this song live, here.
