Cara Mia - Rakastua voisit aivan pikkuisen
Eini covered both sides of Baccara's first single. But they were released here as separate singles. The first one "Yes Sir, alkaa polttaa" was the bigger seller and Eini's breakthrough song. But this second one "Rakastua voisit aivan pikkuisen" (You could fall in love, just a little) climbed also to Top 10 in Finland in 1978. There were also three other covers made in Finland in the same year, to the same lyrics ,made by Pertsa Reponen. The original song "Cara Mia" was, as stated , the B-side of Baccara's first single "Yes Sir I Can Boogie". It was composed, as always, by Ralf Soja. This happens to me my personal favourite of Baccara songs. You can see them perform it live, here.
