Saddest song ever.
Look past the video — derided for its hokey dance moves — and listen to the lyrics.
Armi, a Finnish beauty queen whose voice, like Karen Carpenter’s, betrayed an unending sadness, died at 43 of pneumonia, after years of alcoholism and depression.
A romance with her co-singer didn’t work out, as he returned to his wife.
So, listen to the lyrics:
You love me, you wanna love me tender
How can I be sure you’re not pretender?
You want me today
But what about tomorrow?
And if you give your heart
I’ll never ever leave you
