Artist: Frederik
Title: Kung Fu Taistelee
Language: Finnish
Cover: ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ by Carl Douglas

I can’t even begin to imagine how this song happened. I suppose Kung Fu was quite a big thing for a while in Europe. I remember the Carl Douglas version being played all the time when I was a kid (probably in 1974, as that’s when it was a hit), and I can only assume that the interest in Far Eastern study and philosophy (incorporating martial arts) crossed to Finland. This guy has quite a look, anyway. I feel sure I shall return to Frederik later in the year…
