Our quote today is from the Finnish entry of 1977. The selected entry was “Lapponia” by Monica Aspelund.
Monica Aspelund was born on 16 July 1946, in Vaasa, Finland. She was born to Swedish speaking Finnish parents. She started her music and dancing career at the age of fourteen. Her most notable work is her song “Lapponia”. The song may do not won the contest, but became a fan favourite and therefore a Eurovision classic. The Friday’s Xmas Quote couldn’t finish without a song from Santa Claus’ country!
Her song was “Lapponia” and it was composed by Aarno Raninen and the lyrics were written by Monica herself. The conductor of the live performance was Ossi Runne. It finished 10th at the final with 50 points.
Tuo neito noita on
Hän luo voimalla kohtalon
Hän vailla on seuraa ja lohduttamaton
Ja siksi loihtii hän noituen
Hän luo voimalla loitsujen
Hän tavalla Seidan näin miehen kutsua saa
The quote is in Finnish as it is the rest of the song. That means: “That girl is a witch, she creates with the power of destiny, she’s without company and consolation and that’s why she conjures witching, she creates with the power of spells, in the way of Seita she can beckon a man”.
