SUMMERTIME!!!

Hey everyone! Those nine long ones are behind us again and we're ready to do our best to grab a hold of yet another fleeting summer!

To help y'all grab yours, here's our musical tribute to one of the coolest - literally - inventions ever: the popsicle!

See if you can spot your own childhood favorite from the lyrics!

Also, don't forget our annual Viola's Day Fest this Thursday at Semifinal in Helsinki! As always, we'll be playing three sets: metal covers + two original sets. It'll be goood! See you there!

Have the best summer ever!

Lyrics

POPSICLE SUMMER

here it comes
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

ooh I'm longing for another popsicle
cos Finnish summer is so fickle
every spring at least will bring some new tastes
all of which are not that great
but there might be new candidates for
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

hats off to Frank Epperson who was just eleven
when he bumped into his invention
a frozen drink combined with a wooden stick (ingenious!)
ice pop ice block ice lolly icy pole
oh so sweet and fresh and ice cold
when it gets hot you'll surely dig this
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

this is a tribute to
pop pop pop pop pop pop popsicles
of yesteryears that are now missing
Handy with it's pointed finger
Roger Rabbit's jelly center
Jenga was a long green spiral
Batman, Pop Up, Rio Cola
M.A.C. Black Orange, where did you vanish
please stay with me, at least you Pommac and Päärynä Lipsi!

cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

Toimii! Juurikin mukava kesäbiisi, vaikken edes yleisesti ottaen iloisista kesäbiiseistä tykkää. Tai edes mehujäistä!

Great piece! Now you got me

Great piece! Now you got me fancying a Rio Cola... Extra thumbs up for using the word "yesteryear." Loved the visuals too! Such idle ways.
