Felicia - Sanoit liian paljon
One of the lesser known Johnny's hits is "Sanoit liian paljon" (You said too much). It was released as B-side of a single in 1967. This beautiful ballad and lyrics seemed to suit well for the not-so-talkative people of Finland. The original was an instrumental tune called 'Felicia' and recorded in 1965 for their 5th album 'Going Places' by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. It was written by TB's guitarist John Pisano and named after Herb Albert's maid (!).
