When Your Heart Is Full Of Love - Sen tietää kun onnen löytää saa
Juhani Markola sometimes covered songs that were quite unknown, but nevertheless interesting and enchanting. This is one of those songs. "Sen tietää kun onnen löytää saa" (You'll know when you find happiness) was released in 1977 both as a single and an album track on his "Rakkaudella" album. The lyrics were provided by Pertsa Reponen. The original song was a minor European hit for American Chris Montez (b. Ezekiel Christopher Montanez) in 1972. Chris is of course best remembered by his smash hit "Let's Dance" in 1962. He did a sort of come-back in Europe 10 years later with some English- and Spanish -language records, and this "When Your Heart Is Full Of Love" is an example of those.
