Song sung blue - Mitä sisälläni on

Dave (see earlier entry) recorded "Mitä sisälläni on" (What's inside me) in 1972. It was released on eponymous album and also as a single. The latter one was a flop. The Finnish lyrics were provided by Chrisse Johansson. The original song was from the the productive pen of singer-songwriter Neil Diamond. He released "Song sung blue" in 1972, and it turmed out to be his second number 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards - "Record of the Year" and "Song of the Year - but won neither of those. You can see Neil perform the song live, here.

Here's the pair:
