Day 65 of 98 – The Music of Finland

21 Nov

During this visit to Finland I’ve heard some incredible music.

  • Lisa Stansfield – Been Around the World (Twice)
  • Terence Trent D’Arby – Sign Your Name
  • A-Ha – Take On Me
  • Abba – Waterloo (Swedish Version)
  • My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion (CanCon)
  • Holding Back the Years – Simply Red

Most of these songs take me back a few years. Except the ABBA. They take me back to August.

I did get an opportunity to visit the brand new music stadium located in beautiful downtown Helsinki. That was pretty cool. There was even a Canadian from Ottawa performing. What I liked best is that the guard rails were of a decent height. This is not the case everywhere.

Nice and safe

Humans are getting taller and this means that in a few years many of our theaters, stadiums, and chocolate factories are going to have to undergo a refit to raise their guard rails. It’s going to be expensive. I’m happy to report that the Finns had the foresight to make the ones in their state-of-the-art concert hall of a proper height.

The seats were a good size too. Humans are not just growing taller.
