Two Finnish legends, born within 9 days of each other:
Tapio Rautavaara (1915-1979)
- Olympic champion in track & field, team world champion in archery, successful actor
an incredible singer. The 2nd piece is a traditional Finnish Christmas song, apologies for the bad timing.
Olavi Virta (1915-1972)
- Quite possibly the best singer in the history of Finnish popular music. The 1st song was first made famous by the Italian singer Fred Buscaglione, and everyone should recognize the 2nd one.
