Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Marja Tyrni, or Marja Seabuckthorn, or Seabuckthorn Berry since “marja” is “berry” in English.

Jore Marjaranta, talented but to my opinion somewhat underestimated as solo musician

Jore Marjaranta, talented but to my opinion somewhat underestimated as solo musician

He’s an ex-Leningrad Cowboy who also did music for Pahat Pojat (Bad Boys) and Minä ja Morrison (Me and Morrison) movies.

Puhu […]

They might be missing a few […]

Eurovision in a nutshell

Eurovision in a nutshell

Tomorrow no one cares for it anymore, so I’ll write today. Sorry for the criticism in advance folks – remember it’s just an opinion 😉

Just two VOICES – I mean, for real – Sweden and United Kingdom, but they might be out of question completely being, respectively, quasiopera and musical stuff. Patricia Kaas […]
