This blogger has had a soft spot for the Swedish Päivärinta sisters of Finnish origin, Lili and Susie since they sung about summer nights 30 years ago and they provided soundtrack to my life for many years to come. The Swedish rumor mill is suggesting they are aiming for Melodifestivalen and then Vienna in 2015. Now, wouldn't that be fabulous?
They made it big with Oh mama in 1987 and then their string of hits crossed borders to Finland and Scandinavia and even elsewhere in Europe and all the way to Japan. Bara du och jag, We were only dancing, Robert and Marie, What's the color of love, Nothing could be better, Something in your eyes, Evelyn.... hits after hits from 1987-1992. Then things slowed down and No sugar added (1992) remains their latest studio album. They did solo projects and other things until comeback in Melodifestivalen 2009 with Show me heaven (following 1989's Okej, okej!). This year they have released already Fly, fly little bird and Would you be mine - is there maybe an album in the making? And perhaps they will be third time lucky in 2015? While waiting for that here's a Megamix!
