Things - Niin se mietittiin
In our randomly appearing series "Both Sides Now" we now present the flipside of yesterday's Paula Koivuniemi's single. It was called "Niin se mietittiin" (That's the way it was figured out) and like the "A.i.e" this song has also fallen in oblivion. Which is sad, becouse it's one fine catchy pop tune. The original song was written and performed by entertainer legend Bobby Darin (b. Walden Robert Perciville Cassotto) in his country days in 1962. This "Things" was also big country chart hit for him. The song became even more popular in 1967, when performed by Dean Martin and Nancy Sinatra.
Updated on 14.09.2010; added the first Finnish version "Kurkkija oot" (Snooper you) by Katri Helena and Matti Paalosmaa.
