Soy rebelde - Kun paljon antaa
Kisu (real name Kristian Järnström) was only 13 years old when he started his career as a pop star in the 60's. At that tender age he was the drummer for the popular Finnish rock/pop group Topmost. In the 70's Kisu went solo. One of his minor hits from 1972 was "Kun paljon antaa" (When you give a lot). It was a version of a Spanish hit song "Soy rebelde" (I'm a rebel) sung by a girl named Jeannette (real name Janette Anne Dimech) in 1971. Four years later she would become famous for her touching interpretation of 'Porque Te Vas' in the sound track of the Carlos Saura movie "Cria Cuervos" ("Raising Ravens"/"The Secret of Anna" 1975).
