Lady Love Bug - Turhaan siipi maassa astelin
Marion Rung recorded "Turhaan siipi maassa astelin" (I was feeling down, in vain) in 1972 on her album "Tom tom tom" and it was released also as a single, but with modest success. The lyrics were written by Pertti "Pertsa" Reponen and the arrangements by Rauno Lehtinen. The original song "Lady Love Bug" was the last charted hit (it only reached number 28 in the UK charts) for Clodagh Rodgers. She was best known for her 1971 Eurovision Song Contest entry "Jack In The Box" (finnpicked earlier, here)
