Cento campane - Sata kelloa

This is Finnpick number 100!. So, I think it's appropriate to choose a song that bears the title "Sata kelloa" (A hundred bells). It was recorded by Pasi Kaunisto in 1973. Pasi's recording career began in 1968, and he was very populat artist in the first years of the 1970's. After this his popularity waned and at one point tried new career as undertaker (!) but has since come back into music business, performing mainly spiritual songs and classical music. The oroginal version of "Sata kelloa" was coming from Italy and was called "Cento campane" (A hundred bells). It was the theme song for the very popular TV serie in 1971 - "Il segno del comando" (The sign of the commander). (The series was shown in Finnish televison with the title "Käskijän merkki" in 1973). The song was recorded by the singer Nico Tirone. Nico had been a member in 60's Italian beat group called Nico e i Gabbiani (Nico and The Gulls), and continued as solo artist in 70's with the moniker Nico dei Gabbiani. 'Cento campane' wasn't a big hit in Italy until a year later when recorded by Lando Fiorini.
