What You've Done To Me - Miksi tämän teit
More gems from the year 1961. Timo Jämsen (see earlier entry) recorded "Miksi tämän teit" (Why did you do that) in 1961. It was quite popular at the time but not a chart-topper. The lyrics were written by old stalwart Sauvo "Saukki" Puhtila. "What You've Done To Me" was the name of the original song and it was one of the lesser known hits of Paul Anka. He recorded the song in 1957 duetting with a female artist called Micki Marlo. Micki worked the US variety show circuit in the 1950s and appeared on the original late-night TV talk show "Tonight Show". Micki was also a member of the cast in Ziegfeld Follies Broadway show of 1957.
