The 7th competition in our ten part series involves again something to do with ABBA. In 1969 Bjorn and Benny released a song in Swedish called HEJ GAMLE MAN which became quite a big hit. I only heard the song for the first time in 1996 and loved it from the first minute and I always wanted it to be covered. Steven Sterling did it, both in English and in Afrikaans.

The Afrikaans title is KLEIN PIK SOENTJIES (Small cheek kisses) and the English title is SHOW ME THE WAY.

A copy of this will be handed to the ABBA museum but we have two copies for Bjorn and Benny fans.

The question is – if Bjorn and Benny ask you for which 2016 artist should they compose a song, who will you suggest and why?

Please put your answers as a comment to this post.
