You´re The One That I Want - Sinut haluan vain
Kirka had two singing kid sisters, Marija a.k.a Muska (see ealier entry), and Anna, who, together with brother Kirka, recorded "Sinut haluan vain" (You're the only one I want) in 1978. It was a quite a big hit at the time. The lyrics were made by Pertsa Reponen and the arrangements by Veikko Samuli. And the result was quality work all the way. The original song was worldwide hit for Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. It was included in the soundtrack of the movie "Grease" in 1978. The song and the movie of course contributed on each other's success. You can see the Olivia and John perform it in the movie, here. On the more lighter side (if that's possible ;-)), here's a hilarious Finnish version of the song, from a popular TV show.
