Parce que je t'aime mon enfant - Pojalleni
Danny recorded "Pojalleni" (To my son) in 1976 for his album "Elämän maku". The lyrics were this time crafted by Chrisse Johansson. It was released as a single and on the flip side was fittingly a song called "Isä" (Father). The original song was sung and co-written by French superstar Claude Francois (finnpicked before, see here). Claude's song was called "Parce que je t'aime mon enfant " (Because I love my child ), and it was a hit for him in France, but the song became world famous when Elvis Presley recorded it in 1974 as "My Boy".
