    Quiz #19 - a tougher one

    You probably have not heard of this group and perhaps you havenít heard this older song either.
    The group, which was founded in 1959, is from a Nordic country that borders Norway and Finland.
    They recoded the quiz song, which was written by a cousin of Ira and Charlie.

    Robert Glynn ? recorded this song.
    It might break Woodmanís heart if he canít figure this one out.

    Who is the singer and what is the song title?

    Woodman, Darn! It's like you are reading my mind, LOL. It is "The Great Snowman" which was written by John D. Loudermilk (a cousin of The Louvin Brothers - Ira and Charlie).
    Robert Glynn is the birth name of Bob Luman, who recorded the song in 1961.
    The group is "Streaplers" (not Steaplers - but I will give it to you). They are from Sweden.

    The song can be heard at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1Csc27lVhs
    Betcha can't listen to this without tapping your foot.


    Nice try bassy9.

    Yes I had also thought of the Streaplers, but didn't know which song, so decided to try elsewhere
