An absolute classic:



Finland
by Robert Graves

FEET and faces tingle
In that frore land:
Legs wobble and go wingle,
You scarce can stand.

The skies are jewelled all around,
The ploughshare snaps in the iron ground,
The Finn with face like paper
And eyes like a lighted taper
Hurls his rough rune
At the wintry moon
And stamps to mark the tune.

from Fairies and Fusiliers. 1918.

My name is Tero, and I'm a TK rehearsaholic.

"And now the biggest hit: Fria Norden by Friska Händerna."

Terveet Kädet: Tornio Blues
An LP from last year. It has two rehearsals, 1983 and 1980, as far as I know. No titles listed(?)

1. T tuho, 2. Pissaa ja paskaa, 3. Mull on liian lyhyt sänky, 4. Minä haluan paljon rahaa, 5. Onnellisia kytkentöjä, 6. Outo maa, 7. Musta, 8. Tornion kevät, 9. Tuntematon sotilas

10. Suzy is a headbanger - Joutukaa sielut, 11. Commando, 12. ??, 13. Terveet kädet pop, 14. I wanna be your boyfriend, 15. 18 vvk, 16. ??, 17. Today your love, 18. Vapaa pohjola, 19. Anarchy in the uk, 20. ??, 21. No fun, 22. Minä en halua mennä metsään / I don't wanna go to the forest (could be a cover.. or not), 23. Blitzkrieg bop
-- In mind-blowing stereo. Is this by any chance the tape they recorded for Swedish Norrbotten radio?

??= can't tell off the top of my head. At least the Ramones tunes are sung in Finnish (different titles).
