Petite femme - Et saa sitä miettiäkään
Kai Hyttinen recorded "Et saa sitä miettiäkään" (You shall not even think about it) in 1975 for his album "Saanhan olla hän". It was not released as a single, being perhaps something else that public expected from Kai. The lyrics were crafted by Kai's (and ours) old friend Veikko "Vexi" Salmi. The original song was called "Petite femme" (Little woman) and it was a 1974 hit for French singer named Santiana. His real name was Jean-Pierre d'Amico, and he was born in Tunisia but made his career in France. He was popular singer in the 70's and later moved to broadcasting business being the the first program director of French youth radio station NRJ (broadcasting nowadays also in Finland).
