I suggest you'd all go and have a listen to at least one of Iiris Viljanen's songs, namely ”As Old As Me”. It is magical and can't stop thinking about it. As a song, it is so perfect that the only fault I can find is the tiny fact that I didn't write it myself. When she sings the line containing the title for the second time, something happens within me. And what on earth is she singing? Should I try to find out (I've got her as a friend on myspace...)? Obviously it has got something to do with love beyond what's generally accepted. But with a man, who has a room "where wise men fill the walls", who then refuses by saying "let's see, when you're as old as me". Dear Lord.
Of course, I hope she get's the chance to record it without the mic pops (and the synth trumpet...). But still, the piano, the structure, the voice, perfect.
