Candy Girl - Aivan ehdoton

On the flipside of the previously finnpicked Topmost 1967 single (Hän sinut jättää/Two Kinds Of Lovers, see here) was this "Aivan ehdoton" (Truly uncomparable). The song features comparatively rare Finnish falsetto singing. The Finnish lyrics were provided by Jyrki Lindström. The original song "Candy Girl" was a big hit for Four Seasons in 1963.  It was written by Larry Santos and produced by Bob Crewe, and it was the first original Four Seasons single not composed by either Bob Gaudio or Bob Crewe.  "Candy Girl" reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
