Kissing In The Back Row Of The Movies - Filmi päästä päähän suukotellaan
This is one of Fredi's lesser known covers. He recorded "Filmi päästä päähän suukotellaan" (Kissing the movie from end to end) in 1974. It was included in his album "Avaa sydämesi mulle". The Finnsih lyrics were wtitten by Vexi Salmi. The original song was called "Kissing In The Back Row Of The Movies" and it was a big European hit for the legendary vocal group The Drifters. The song was written by Roger Greenaway, but this time his songwriting partner was not Roger Cook, but another famous songwriter/producer Tony Macaulay. You can see the Drifters' immaculate performance of the song, here.
