La Bambola - Pieni nukke
Fredi (a.k.a Folk-Fredi, real name Matti Siitonen) began his career in '60s and is still going strong. He started as folk singer but soon changed into pop, and his specialty are the powerful pop ballads. "Pieni nukke" (A little doll) is one of those. It was recorded in 1968 and quickly became a hit. The original is an Italian song called "La Bambola" (The Doll), which was performed by deep-voiced Patty Pravo (real name Nicoletta Strambelli) in 1968.
