The Original Version

Harry’s 1973 album, All Kinds of Everything has been remastered and reissued to iTunes and CDBaby. You can download tracks now.  But did you know about the original version of the title track?

Irish singer, Dana, performed the song at the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest and it captured the title that year.  Four years later, a certain four-piece group out of Swedan won the contest with their song, Waterloo, and the rest was music history.

Here’s Dana’s version of the song from the night of her win.  Enjoy!
