That's the Way - Kaiken saan
Now is the time to keep an old promise of mine. Marion Rung recorded "Kaiken saan" (I'll get everything) in 1965. The original was "That's the Way"'. a song performed by The Honeycombs and produced by legendary Joe Meek. The Honeycombs were a London band with a female drummer, Ann "Honey" Lantree. The group's founder Martin Murray had worked as a hairdresser - Ann being his assistant. They decided to combine his profession with the nickname of the drummer, and changed their name to The Honeycombs. Previously they were known as the Sheratons. This song was written by Alan Blaikley, the other half of the famous songwriting team of Howard - Blaikley. And it's somewhat exceptional, as Honey is the lead singer alongside Dennis Dell, who usually was taking the lead.
