Rahutu Tuhkatriinu

OK, gotta admit it: I love this. A young Estonian singer remakes a Finnish dance hit from 1980s - and ends up with something way better than the original. Well, you can compare them yourself. If the languages sounds similar, that's just because Finnish and Estonian are related, but I have to admit I understand only a few words here and there. I actually like the way Estonian sounds: It's kinda like Finnish with a soft slavic touch, spoken by a Finn who's forgotten the words and is making most of them up as he goes along.

Gah. I feel a trip to Estonia approaching... (Unless I can find a web store that sells this, or they release this before I manage to hop to a ferry.)

Well, I bought a cd (Kosmikud - Pulmad ja Mattused) from this store:

http://www.cdmarket.eu/

A few weeks ago. Reasonable price, paid via paypal, cd arrived in about five or six days. They seem to carry Mari-Leen's cd as well, and at _very_ reasonable price.

As for Estonian pop/rock, gotta admit, I like it a lot. This one sounded good enough, even if my tastes lean more on the side rock like Kosmikud. And hey, they covered Röyhkä.

Thanks heaps; put in an order right away :-)

I'm sorry, but you're just wrong. Wrong, I tell you.

While Mari-Leen is not bad, she's pretty soulless and has very little emotion in her voice - I mean, she doesn't even come close to Nipa.

Bah. This ain't soul, this is pop. By definition it's soulless.
