Lyrics
Girl from Helsinki

Tall and blonde and young and lovely.
The girl from Helsinki goes walking.
And when she passes, each one she passes goes: ah!

The girl from Helsinki, I watch her so sadly.
I would give her my heart, so, so, so, so gladly.
She looks straight ahead, straight ahead, not at me.
The girl from Helsinki, I watch her so gladly, sadly.

When she walks she's like a tango.
That swing so cool and sways so sadly.
Then when she passes, each one that she passes go: oh-la-la - ooh!

Wonderful take on one
of my favourite songs. A brilliant idea.
Love the reversed bits and pieces that fit so well. Instrumentation throughout is inspired. Are they vocal samples in the background? You have managed to definitely make them your own if they are.
Another treasured download for me. Thanks.
Cheers

Thanks!
Well, my idea was not to re-do what is also in my chapter one of the best songs ever, it just happened to become a huge influence, first musically, then lyrically as I moved along. It would first of all be difficult, if not impossible to touch the original, although many have tried successfully, they've also most of the times chosen to stay true to the original. This is more of a road movie, a Finnish road movie in the color of the Finnish Director Aki Kaurismäki, whom also played a significant part in the making of this song. I wish I knew how to shoot movies!

A really creative one again. Humorous and maybe serious, made with an such artistic distance that you can't tell if it is meant to be fun for serious, which spurs imagination.

I love the genre Pop (Alternative)
how about wildly inventive gorgeously alternative?
Great track Mikki. Were you ever into the work Kevin Ayers did after Soft Machine?
