Cuore matto - Meni hermot

The First calls itself "the oldest rock band in Finland". It was born in 1964, and is still gigging actively. The first 3 singles of the band were all sizeable hits. The second one was "Meni hermot" (Lost my nerves) in 1967. It was originally an Italian tune recorded (also in1967) by our old friend Little Tony, and called "Cuore matto" (Mad heart). It was his biggest hit. Tony has recently done come back, and wants to celebrate his 50 years in music by representing San Marino in next year's Eurovision song Contest(!). Perhaps The First should try to do the same for Finland ...

Here's the pair:
