I'm Going Out - Kun lähden pois
Ringa ja Kaksoset (see earlier entry) recorded "Kun lähden pois" (When I'm going away) in 1967. It was the A-side of their first single. It didn't sell much but got them into a television program and subsequently into touring with Johnny. The original song was performed by American pop singer Lesley Gore (b. Lesley Sue Goldstein) and it was called "I'm Going Out (The Same Way I Came In)". It was the B-side of her 1967 Top 20 single "California Nights", and it was versioned in UK that same year by Helen Shapiro.
