Hi hi people! 🙂
Today I have a song in FInnish for you, from one of my favourite Finnish rock bands, CMX. Recently I shared with you a song by another Finnish rock band, Haloo Helsinki, CMX’s music is harder though, but this particular song is a rather light rock.
is an English translation of the song.
Finally, it’s time to put something in Finnish on here, as Finnish is one of my favourite languages. Finland has given us tons of fantastic rock bands, but the one I want to show you today, although is definitely well-known and successful in Finland, I believe is barely known outside of their home country. They’re really good and they’re called Haloo Helsinki! which means just hello Helsinki. I really like their vocalist – Elli Haloo (Elisa Tiikalainen).
The song I want to show you though is kinda rap-ish because it’s made in collaboration with another Finnish band – JVG – which is a rap band. I am not a huge fan of rap, unless it just speaks to me, but I do like to listen to foreign language rap sometimes, I mean in some really “out-there” languages, sometimes even those in which I don’t speak a single word like Greek or Hebrew, whatever, don’t know actually why I like doing it, but so it is. 😀 And I guess Finnish is also such a language for some, anyways you rarely hear it anywhere else than Finland, Sweden or Norway. So yeah I like this song a lot and I like the fact it’s rap-ish.
