Alla fine della strada - Unta en saa

Next week Finnpicks goes disco! But before that, let's get some quick-one's for the weekend with the company of old friends.
Eero Raittinen (see previous entry) recorded "Unta en saa" (I get no sleep) in 1969, and it was a modest hit for him.

In 1969 this song was performed by Italian singer Junior Magli and a British group The Casuals. Let's hear the Casuals' (best known for their "Jesamine" -hit) version. You all of course recognize the song being the same as "Love Me Tonight" that Tom Jones made into an international success.

Here's the pair:
