I Can See Clearly Now - Nyt menee kaikki hienommin
The original version of this song has always been one of my favourite summer tunes. It's s perfect song to listen to, when summer rain has gone and the sun comes shining through. Kirka recorded "Nyt menee kaikki hienommin" (Now all things go better) for his 1983 album "Täytyy uskaltaa". The original song "I Can See Clearly Now" was a big 1972 hit for American pop singer-songwriter Johnny Nash. Johnny was not Jamaican, but born in Houston, Texas. But he was the first non-Jamaican to record reggae music in Kingston. BTW, Johnny just turned 70 last week (on the 19th of August).
