Yellow Moon - Puolikuu

Vilperin Perikunta (see earlier entry) recorded "Puolikuu" (Half Moon) in 1992. It was released on their album "Gloria Vilperum". The Finnish lyrics (by band member Arvid Vilperi, a.k.a Ari Varjus) tell about a man's insomnia and his cheating wife. The original "Yellow Moon" was the title track of the 1989 album by the Neville Brothers. It was also released as a single and was one of the groups biggest hits. The song was written by two of the brothers, Aaron and Joel. The main theme of the lyrics was: "Yellow moon, can you tell me, if the girl's with another man?". You can see the band perform the song, here - with Herbie Hancock and John Hiatt.

Here's the pair:
