For some reason there's been lately several documentaries on TV about %C3%B6sta_Sundqvist]Gösta Sundqvist and his band Leevi and the Leavings.

Yet several songs of their long career are among the best known in Finland (particularly among my generation and older).
They are often melancholy stories about troubled people; typically lonely men. There is brutal honesty, not really sympathizing or blaming or taking sides with anyone.

(I am posting this particular song because it was pretty much only one of their songs I could find with English lyrics...)



These two are among their biggest classics:
