Carrying on with posting some song and music video favorites from the 20 years that I’ve been making Onechord.net. Here’s the link to the monster playlist, because I don’t have the time to write a post about everything.
A few more of these nostalgic blasts before returning to normal new music routine.
This first Office Building album pre-dates this blog with a 2000 release date, but it’s one of my all-time top 10 albums (and that includes all countries, not just Finland) and certainly was mentioned several times during the early years. Looking back I can maybe possibly see some very minor flaws in the Office Building discography, but back then in the early 00s it was all love and their songs, records and live concerts meant everything to me. I’ll definitely carry this album with me for as long as I breathe. And while Office Building will always remain the dearest, Janne Laurila has done many great things after it too. He actually just released a couple of beautiful albums earlier in 2021. One solo and one with the almighty Hot Heros. Check them out too. The music video Tomorrow Again is from a later OB album The Sun Hit the Water.
Another album that that has carried me through some sleepless nights and is vital to my mental health is the first Viljami Kukkonen album Mörönsyötti. I can still sing every word in my sleep. The beautiful music video below is from a later almost equally great Viljami album Jos rakkaus tapahtuu.
A more recent favorite is this 2019 album from singer-songwriter Ylva Haru. This is such a special song.
And even more recently there’s this absolutely magical album and song from Laura Moisio. This was my favorite Finnish song of the year 2020.
