Lo Mucho Que Te Quiero - Et vielä tiedä

Johnny recorded over 20 singles in the 60's. "Et vielä tiedä" (You don't know yet) was single number 29, in the summer of 1969. It wasn't such a big hit at the time but the simple and beautiful song has lived through the years. The original song "Lo Mucho Que Te Quiero" (The More I Love You) was a hit in the USA in spring 1968. It was performed by a duo that was a pioneer of Tejano/Tex-Mex music - Rene y Rene. The two Renes - Rene Ornelas and Rene Herrera - were fron Laredo, Texas and very popular in Latin music circles. The group scored two hit singles in the U.S. in the 1960s and this was the bigger pne (reached number 14 in Hot 100). The song has frequently used as wedding music, which is easy to understand. I think the Finnish version - with new lyrics - would also be a sure bet in Finnish weddings ...

Here's the pair:
