You've Got a Friend - Voit luottaa ystävään
Here's another James Taylor cover. Danny released "Voit Luottaa Ystävään" (You can trust a friend) in 1971. It was on the B-side of "Valvoin tänään aamukuuteen" -single (finnpicked here). The original song, "You've Got a Friend", written by Carole King, was included in her album Tapestry, but was made famous by James Taylor. Taylor's rendition was released as a single from his own 1971 album "Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon". It went all the way to number 1 on the Billboard charts.
