For the week that’s in it with England taking on Denmark in the Euros here’s Rainy Days and Songdanes and Scandis.
And before my Finnish friend Paula starts I know Finland, or Iceland, are technically Scandinavian.
Though I have seen these Nordic countries included as Scandi in places.
Scandis and Nordis are uniting in support of the Danes on Wednesday.
And much of the world after Christian Eriksen’s collapse.
Why the three countries on the British isle don’t do the same for each other is a different story.
All of which brings us to a musical tour of these lands.
Whigfield, Saturday Night: ‘It’s party time and not a minute we can lose.’
Now that’s a call to arms if ever. And it’ll be easy for the Danes to change the words to Wednesday Night.
Abba Waterloo (Swedish version): Yes I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do if only Agnetha had been available rhen.
Where Finns started
Hard Focks Hallelujah. Finland glam punk band Hannoi Rocks were thete long before Lordi and even inspired Bon Jovi and Green Day.
Ice, Ice, Baby
All in the setting of the Euro favourites Italy and our favourites too, though it’s for you to work out if that means football favouritism.
But that can wait… here’s to Rainy Days and Songdanes and Scandis.
