Worst Finnish Translation Songs

While we are on the "Worst of" subject, here's another list: of the worst cover versions of international hits translated into Finnish. Especially in the 1970s "golden years" of Finnhits these translated versions sung by local artists were popular, but here are included some "gems" all the way from 1960s to the present day. For example, how about some classics by The Beatles in Finnish? You'll be amazed by how they had nerve to translate just everything: Lou Reed, David Bowie, King Crimson... and of course the biggest disco hits of the 70s! With commentaries in Finnish.
