June Song Meme

Liudmila tagged me with a meme giving me a Russian song from her youth.

I pass along this old Finnish song from my youth. It is almost the time of summer solstice and it is a very important feast to all Finns. Since my teenage years I have always connected this song to Midsummer. It is a waltz Kesäillan valssi (Summernight's Waltz) by Oskar Merikanto. I like dancing and very rarely get the chance to dance. This song makes me waltz by myself. Even the picture on the screen is suitable for Juhannus, which is the night when the sun does stay up all night in the north. Here in the south of Finland we have about 3 hours dark.
