Finnish Female Pop Stars

If you're a regular or even casual reader of this blog, you should know by now that there's basically no point in trying to figure out why I post the things that I post. The only logical conclusion that can be drawn is that I'm hopelessly weird, and therefore I find weird things fascinating. Case in point, this post, which consists solely of pop songs by Finnish female singers. A few of the songs are sung in English, but most are in Finnish. Even though I don't understand what they're singing about most of the time, it doesn't diminish my enjoyment of the music – or their beautiful voices – one bit. Hopefully, you'll enjoy these as much as I did in compiling them.  ~  JH
