We Do It - Minuun uit
We have met Brothers Saari many times. This time we present their 1977 song "Minuun uit" (You swim into me) released of course under moniker Jouko, Kosti ja Paavo, on the eponymous album. The lyrics were crafted by Pertsa Reponen. The original song was written by Englishman Russell Stone, who also first recorded it (in 1975) with his wife Joanna. They were performing under the name R & J Stone. The song became a big hit, but Russell Stone decided that he did not want to remain as a singer, and preferred to concentrate on producing and writing for his wife. Sadly, Joanna died only four years later. You can see the duo performing the song, here.
