La sai troppo lunga - Tiedät aivan liikaa

It's a long time since we finnpicked with Katri Helena. Now is the time. She recorded "Tiedät aivan liikaa" (You know way too much) in 1966. It was released as a single but for some reason it was not a such big hit as would be expected from Katri Helena. This song was clearly an attempt to duplicate the success of "Lui" in the previous year. That's becouse the song was again a cover of Rita Pavone's (the original performer of "Lui") song. It was called "La sai troppo lunga" ("You know too much"), and the single it was on, was a sizeable hit in Italy, although this song was on the B-side. You can see Katri perform his version on a TV show, here.

Here's the pair:
