Over and Over - Vieläkin vieläkin vain
Kai Hyttinen (see previous entry) released "Vieläkin vieläkin vain" (Still over and over again) in 1973 as a B-side of his 18th single "Honolulu". It was not a big hit. but this is a decent version of the original one. A teenage popduo called James Boys had a smash hit in UK with "Over and over" in 1973. The duo consisted of two brothers Bradley and Stewart. But their last name was not James, but Palmer. The boys were only 11-12 years old at the time, and you might hear it in their singing. They remained one-hit-wonders, but returned to pop and recording business in the 90's uder various pseudonyms. This "Over And Over" was composed by Daniel Boone, who had hits in his own right.
