Immer Mehr - Tuulen tie
One of Kai Hyttinen's biggest hits was his 1970 single "Tuulen tie" (The way of the wind). The driving up-beat melody, Juha Vainio's lyrics and Kai's pleasant delivery made this song an instant hit. The original song was of German origin. It was a small hit in 1969 for a German pop- and schlager star Peter Rubin (b. Peter Kohlhuber), who was born in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Because of his height, Peter was given the ironic nickname "The Greatest Pop Singer of Germany".
