Friday’s Xmas Quote – Finland 1977

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”.

Part of her Eurovision performance.

That is the first Friday’s Quote of 2020 and the last for the time. From this point, due to the national finals season, we will concentrate on keeping you up to date with all Eurovision news. Thanks for your support. Have a happy new year and stay tunes on MyEuRoFreaKs for all the Eurovision news!
