ADVENT CALENDAR 9. DOOR The best songs from tv show ”Only life”/Parhaat vain elämää biisit

”The Finnish story” (orig.performer Vesku Jokinen.) This is the beautiful song about finnishness. English lyrics:

The dutch tv-program format, orig: ”De beste zangers van Nederland” has also been very popular in Finland. We know it by name: ”Vain elämää” as ”Only life”. This program have also been shown in Sweden, Norway, Estonia and Denmark and it’s my enduring favorites. The idea is that on every season a group of artists come together for about a week and they present versions of each other’s songs. Everyone in turn has their own day. On that day, others will perform his/ or her songs. The artist’s day also goes through her/ or his life. What a great idea this is!

This fall we saw the 11th season of the program and we heard again many wonderful versions of songs by popular finnish artists. Here you can listen some of those songs.

Mariska: ”The double bed sheets” A very touching song of divorce (orig. by Herra Ylppö).

A song remastered by Mariska: ”Sami Kuronen”. The song from a popular, charismatic finnish speaker/radio reporter who’s name is: Sami Kuronen. Sami is hosting Finnish version of Temptation Island and this theme is ingeniously incorporated into the song. A very funny conversion from the original song which was made from ex-miss Nina Autio! The song name was orig.also ”Nina Autio”, sang: Vesku Jokinen.

Mariska: ”Princesses dancing to the stars”. A more touching version of the song by Ressu Redford, orig: ”Princess”

Jannika B: ”Six moons and the rings of Saturn” (orig.performer Ressu Redford.) English lyrics:
Reino Nordin: ”Look what you did” Orig.Phil Collins: ”Take a Look at Me Now” (Finnish orig.performer Ressu Redford.)
Jannika B: ”When you touch me”/”Sometimes When We Touch” (Finnish orig.performer ex-tangoqueen: Arja Koriseva.)
Arja Koriseva: ”Thank you” ( Mariska.) Very beautiful song!
Arja Koriseva: ”A stream of tears”. ( Reino Nordin.) English lyrics:
Stig: ”Who is the (right) one” ( Ressu Redford.) Very clever version. I like those electro sounds! English lyrics:
Stig: ”Boys don’t dance” ( Herra Ylppö.) Funny electro song. English lyrics:

DANCING WITH THE STARS (as TTK-Finland) covid-19

Season 13.episode 10. Miisa and Marko Keränen. With this ”Phantom Of The opera” themed paso doble they got full 30 points. It is absolutely stylish!

I was gonna made a post of dancing with the stars semifinals which should have been on Sunday. I was waited this semifinal episode a whole week and then when Sunday finally came, I went to net and clicked the show on. Then I realized that actually isn’t semifinal episode at all. There was just an episode where judges did memorize the best dances of previous seasons. Later when I was searching on net, I found the news about this. There were said that someone on Dancing with the stars team had covid -19 virus and that’s why the semifinal episode was cancelled.

Season 11. Boxer: Edis Tatli and Katri Mäkinen. Amazing fiery tango!

I’m disappointed that I couldn’t see my favorite vlogger: Miisa on the dancefloor as every sunday! Let’s see if DWTS can move on or will they quit it. Actually they shouldn’t even start the show this year. It would have been better if they just had decide not to show it but they did, and now when I have been watching it every week, what a pity it would be if it ends unfinished. Well, just have to wait and see.

Miss Finland 2010 Viivi Pumpanen ja Matti Puro 2011.

Earlier on this season there were covid -19 case on one of the DWTS orchester members and they did switch the orchester for a week. Now only two weeks after that another case of the virus occured…

This covid -19 have totally ruined my life in every possible way. It almost have took my mentall healthy away too and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Maybe you too are feeling this way, or are you? Are you as worried than I am now when I’m almost loosing my mind because of the fear (specially now when this covid-19 have started to spread here in Finland too?)

Season 12. epidode 10. Singer Jannika B and Aleksi Seppänen. Truly one of the best dances in ”TTK” history. So beautiful and emotional!

There is not much else to do than only pray to God to make this end and make the world normal againon the meantime we can try to relax with watching these beautiful dance shows…maybe it helps…even a little!

Season 12. episode 6. An actor Christoffer Strandberg and Matti Puro. This dance was historic in DWTS Finland last year. It was the first time we saw two men on the dance floor. I must say it felt weard for me at first when I heard this was coming but this is great dance and the more I watch it, the more I just see two great dancer, without thinking it’s two men dancing. Maybe even this ”granny” can still learn new, fresh perspectives.
