Gorrión - Varpunen
Kai Hyttinen has made a couple of successful songs about birds. "Varpunen" (Sparrow) was one of those and recorded in 1980. It has become a little classic and one of the most requested songs in Kai's repertoire. The touching lyrics were made by Veikko "Vexi" Salmi. The original song "Gorrión" (Sparrow) was written and performed by Miguel Gallardo, who had a hit with it in 1978. Miguel was a Spanish singer and composer, born in in Granada, Andalucia. He was one of the most successful Spanish singers in the seventies and early eighties, making waves especially in Latin America.
