Rainy Days And Mondays - Eksyä saa emme
It's cloudy weather at the moment , and some rain is forecast this evening. Well, I guess this is the right time to present this particular song in Finnpicks. Anne Mattila has been several years one of the most popular Finnish contemporary female singers. In 2008 she released the album "On Siitä Aikaa Kun Radiota Kuunneltiin" (It's been a long time since we listened to the radio). On it, she versioned songs from the Carpenters repertoire, including many of their greatest hits. One of those, and the final track of the album was this beautiful rendition of "Eksyä saa emme" (We shall not go wrong). The original song was Carpenters' "Rainy Days And Mondays". It was released in 1971 and went to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. You can see them perform the song, here.
