Needles And Pins - Kerran sut löydän
The group Gulliver (see earlier entry) recorded "Kerran sut löydän" (I will find you someday) in 1978. It was released on their album "Gulliver on jee" and released also as a single, but did not hit the charts nor radio playlists. The lyrics were provided by Vexi Salmi. The song is actually quite good version of the original, classic pop song "Needles And Pins". It was written by Sonny Bono and Jack Nitzsche and the first recording was made by Jackie DeShannon (b. Sharon Lee Myers) in 1963. It was only a minor US hit, but when recorded by English beat band The Searchers (see them perform it, here) in 1964, it became worldwide success. The theme of the song - feeling of "pins and needles" - has medical term Paresthesia, which is a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness of a person's skin with no apparent long-term physical effect.
