25 Songs That Prove 90s Finland Was Best Finland

I didn't live in Finland in the 90s. However, thanks to Parasta Ennen! and its Facebook fan group, I've come to learn a lot about what Finland was like in the 90s. Yes, the economy was in turmoil, but the music was still absolutely wonderful in every sense. Here are 25 songs that make me wish I had been born here.
