She Was Too Young - Lauantai


The song of the day is - literally - "Lauantai" (Saturday). It was recorded in 1980 by Satu Pentikäinen, who started in 1977 as a backing singer for Tapani Kansa, when she was only 14 years old. Her first record “Menolippu” - disco cover of earlier Finnpick “One Way Ticket” - was released in 1978 and was an instant hit. "Lauantai" was on her first album "Satu".The original song was called "She Was Too Young" anf petformed by Dutch pop group The Cats, succesfull in the Netherlands and Germany from the late 60's to the mid 80's. This song, a minor European hit, was written by band member Cees Veerman.

Here's the pair:

The cats had two more great originals (for what I know)
1971 "One way wind" "Ikuinen tuuli by Heino Mara one hit wonder, made only this single.
Other one is called "Let's dance" from 1972, made famous by Sammy Babitzin "sinut kun saan" on his only album. R.I.P.
