You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet - Kolmen minuutin muna
Mauri "Moog" Konttinen (see previous entry) was very active figure in pop music in 80's and in the beginning of 90's. He had several bands and one of the them was called Moogetmoogs in 1985-1993. This band was famous for covering several 60's hits with their inimitable style and witty lyrics. Their biggest success was the second single "Kolmen minuutin muna" (Three minute egg) in 1991. The original tune was performed by the Canadian rock group Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO) as "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet". This was the first big international hit for the group in 1974. The main figures in the band were the guitarist Randy Bachman and the singer and bass guitarist C.F. (Fred) Turner. BTO had a string of hit albums and singles in the 70's, until 1977, when Randy left for solo career.
