Maini Sorri - Hold Me(Single review) Maini Sorri – Hold Me Tuesday, 14 May 2013

This is the third dance release from Maini Sorri. This one is more Pop/ dance crossover song, with a softer beat than the previous dance release of Please Go Away. This is a very nice Pop song and accompanies the voice of Maini very well. Very nice flowing beat and song
This song is very good on a speaker system, but for some reason suffers a little on headphones.
This song is also on the Radio Variety Show May Compilation Competition and for general radioplay.

Winter heart

26/01/10

Winter is back 5I love winter. It is not so common, I think, it is more common to like summer or spring. I have always loved winter.  When I was a child, I lived in Finland and we had always real winters with cold degrees and a lot of snow there I lived. I loved to go skiing.

During many years I didn’t goskiing. In my home town in Sweden, where I have lived the most part of my life, the winters haven’t usually lasted that long. And when the snow came, during many years I didn’t know where my skiing equipment was. I envied every winter others that went skiing.

When I think about it now, it seems so stupid that I didn’t go skiing for many years!

Lots of snow fell a week before Chrismas. A new year came with new year’s resolutions and new possiblities.  I decided to look for my skiis in our store. And there, behind everything else, I found my skiis! I also found my ski sticks and my skiing boots. My skiing jacket and my skiing mittens were gone, my skiing cap, too:) Isn’t it strange that things just disappear, they are not stolen but they are just gone!:)

I had bought a new jacket last autumn. When my old skiing jacket was gone I spent one day sawing to improve my new one making it more suitable for skiing. I bought new skiing mittens. After 2 days I finally had my skiing equipment available and ready.

It was such an experience to go skiing again.  The first day we had at least 15 degrees below zero Celsius. To feel the cold wind on my cheeks, I really love it. I also noticed that my condition really needed to improve:)  I now go skiing every day. I love that I don’t need to envy others on the ski track any more, I am one of them, it makes me very happy! I hope that this winter that has been colder and longer that for decades in the whle country, will last as long as possible. The colder the better:) I know some of you don’t agree:) But I love winter.

It is so beautiful in forest where I ski. It is amazing to see all snowy trees. All nature looks wonderful covered with snow.

On facebook people send hearts to each other, silver hearts, golden hearts, bubbling hearts, summer hearts, treasured hearts, snowy hearts, thank you all for sending me many beautiful hearts. What about my heart? I must have a winter heart!

I am back!

maplepathSummer is gone, it is now Autumn in Sweden. How my summer was ? Yes thanks, it was fine. I have worked very much with the Church Parliament election but now the election is over and I have finally more time for music and for my blog posts!

My trip to Finland was great, the weather was wonderful. For the third time, without planning it, I ended up in Tampere just that special night that is called the Night of Arts. I went to several concerts, it was a warm lovely night with Nordic light, so it was really wonderful. To sit in Tampere cathedral and listen to a beautiful soprano the last thing that night was great.

Proud Mum and babiesWhat happened to those young Golden eyes that I told about? The day after I wrote my blogpost about them there were only three of them left.  But those three made it through all dangers for young birds, and grew up and became more and more look a likes of their mother.

It is so funny that they really did recognise me. When I came to their little lake and called them they always came to me. They developped a kind of swimming style that made it possible for them to stay on the same spot without floating away so they could listen to everything I said without moving at all.  Their mother had left the lake for a long time ago and maybe I could be some kind of mother for them for a little while every day. When we had “talked enough” for that day they swam away and I continued my walk in the forest.

Wise Young OwlWhat about the owl? I was so certain about that the owl didn’t get any young birds last summer because I hadn’t seem them and I always find them if they are there. No one else had seen them either. That is why it was a big suprise for me that I met a guy in the forest yesterday that told me that he had seen the owl with 2 young birds high up in a tree  in June. It was nice to hear because it means that the pair of owls still like our City forrest and are certainly coming back even next year. I just can’t wait. I love those grey feather balls:)

Of course I am planning new music projects and I have already been recording in studio. I will very soon upload a new video here. I have written 8 new songs to lyrics by Gary Cornman from USA. Thank you Gary for great lyrics and for great team work!

Have a nice Autumn! And if the season is Spring in your country I wish you a nice Spring!

My new video I am leaving was aired on TV6 in USA 14th of June! I am very happy about it. I am leaving is one of my most popular songs. The English lyrics are written by Barbara Helsingius. Marjo Riitta Oksanen wrote original lyrics. The video is made by Kerstin Svanberg, a radio producer and artist.

Look at these wonderful pictures of Swedish nature in winter and summer, enjoy and please write a comment!

A new video

05/03/09

You are very welcome to check up my video Lähden yksin  (I Am Leaving). It is produced for TV6 in USA and has been aired on TV6 twice. It took 5 months to produce the video because there is both winter and summer on it. For English lyrics,  see topdown. I think you will like the Swedish nature. The views are from nere my hometown. 2007 was a rainy summer. Look at those dark coulds towards the end of the video! It was not easy to find a suitable day for filming, it was always raining some part of the day.

I AM LEAVING

Snow on the ground,

snow all around,

where we buried the past

and the feelings we found.

Storms in the night,

prayers for light,

wishes for wonders

to make wrong turn right.

Chorus:

I may long for your touch once tender,

but don’t think I’ll ever surrender.

I must try the taste of living

among those warm and forgiving.

I must change the ice for fire,

see the sun and feel desire.

Now I’m leaving, 

Yes am leaving,

Oh I’m leaving,

I am leaving.

 Doubt in the air,

mem’ries we share,

truth or illusion?

I really don’t care.

This is my way

right or astray,

I’ll manage I’ll make it

or else I must pay.

Chorus:

I may long for your touch once tender…
