Music on My Mind



Johanna Kurkela, "Avaruus". This is actually the Finnish version of a song originally written in English. The Finnish version is (perhaps a bit unsurprisingly) a little colder and more distant than the English; in the English song we are flying high about the ground, while in the Finnish song we are actually flying up to the stars through icy space.

    It's very difficult to beat Finnish for making a song beautiful, at least when it has a memorable melody.
