my top 10 esc songs: finland
1. 2006 lordi - hard rock hallelujah
lordi deserves to be at the #1. finland has won only once and they managed to do it. also the whole performance is just in another level (wings, pyros). i love how the lyrics are so anti-eurovision. i love it. #torillatavattiin
2. 2014 softengine - something better
at first i didn’t fancy the song but it grew on me. also the boys were so good LIVE. the fact that they were young and did their own music. the background is simple. just them playing music.
3 2008 teräsbetoni - missä miehet ratsastaa
this song is joke to me and my friends but finland needs more LIKE THIS in the eurovision. this is what we are good at sO.. also the extra leather drummers. on a serious note we need more metal entries (also we gotta use our own
DISCLAIMER: i may be biased since I love metal & rock oops..
4. 1987 vicky rosti - sata salamaa
one of my fave finnish songs. this. is. everything. this entry deserved much more than it got. + that background (synth) piano is life.
5. 1984 kirka - hengaillaan
kirka is a legend in finland (rest in peace) but this song is happy and almost every finn know it.
6. 2007 hanna pakarinen - leave me alone
the year finland hosted the show. i almost forgot this song even exists (like most finns) but hanna is amazing and so is this song.
7. 2009 waldo’s people - lose control
finland really stepped up their eurovision game. waldo himself is a 90′s eurodance legend. and this is a great song. I just hate the background firedancers and how the girls have no real choreography..
8 1985 sonja lumme - eläköön elämä
we need to sing more in finnish. also i love the lyrics.
9. 1991 kaija kärkinen - hullu yö
dramatic af. i enjoy it.
10. 2016 norma john - blackbird
dark, mystical, leena’s voice is insane and lasse’s piano solo is in another level. sadly we didn’t qualify.
