Estonia 2015 - Airi Ojamets - Saatuse Laul

Some of the Estonian songs are creeping out, and there's the usual high quality mix of interesting songs from across the pop genres. I'm sure I'll be introducing you to a few of them over the next few days - however this likable little ditty has firmly anchored itself into my subconscious.

It's a happy, folksy little tune that sounds as though it could have come from practically any year this funny old contest has been running. But somehow Airi's charming wobbly voice and those glorious circular Estonian vowels lift it above the formula jangler and give it an extra sweet lift.

The tune's title translates as Song Of Destiny, so maybe it's all written in the stars anyway...

  1. Oooh blimey. To my soused ears, that chorus sounds like an unholy mix of Demis Roussos and Edith Piaf.

  2. This sounds just like the folk-country warblings of Foster and Allen that I endured going on fishing trips in the car with my grandad.But with a lady singing in moon language instead of 2 blokes in Arran jumpers.

  3. Our household now only ever refers to Estonian as 'moon language' because of that very comment. Should make it even more fun when we got there next month!
