Norwegian music a gogo : More Kirsti Sparboe

Incredibly Kirsti's whole career seems to be focused around the Eurovision song-contest.She entered the Norwegian pre-selection in 65,66,67,68,69,72,74 and 77 either alone or in collaboration with other musicians.She represented Norway on the Eurovision song-contest in 65,67,68 (collaboration) and 69 but never won.Besides from that only two singles where released by her in Norway (66 with The Vanguards/69 with Benny Borg) but she released at least 9 singles in Germany (sung in German) where she was pretty big and she also released several albums in Norway,and now thanks to Dan we can enjoy some of her non-Eurovision songs.(ysi links)

Gi meg fri (Second place Melodi Grand Prix 1966)
Na skal du fa kjerlighet (What the world needs now is love)
Til meg kan du alltid komme (Don't sleep in the subway)
Hvem har sagt jeg savner deg
Du er alt (Il mio mondo/You're my world)
Pa en gammel benk (Un banc,un arbre,une rue)

    Too bad her Version of "Stress" didnt make it to the 1968 eurovision. From the crude versions I've heard of it, it sounds far more interestin than Odd Bore's version.

    Apparently it was too close sounding to one of Cliff Richard's songs called "Summer Holiday", and it was disqualified. Odd Bore's version is more common.
