Happy Easter everyone!
One of my favourite national finals songs was playing in my iPod today and I thought I'd share. Didn't really think that I would find it on youtube but I did. Hurrah! Then I listened to the live version and almost started crying. What a total waste of time not finding a real singer for this ABBA-ripoff that is splendid in its own way. The studio version that I have sound more ABBA than ABBA ever did themselves and Ronnie is in tune for the whole 3 minutes. The magic of technology hey!
So when you click that arrow please imagine how good this song could be (and is!) in a studio version without the hysterical strutting from Ronnie.
I give you "Lonely Nights" sung by Ronnie France from British national final A Song For Europe way back in 1978. This could have been a classic but is not for obvious reasons.
