We all know and agree on what the greatest Finnish Eurovision song of all time is, right?……

And we all know the tune that started it all off for one of the greatest pop bands of all time……

That’s two very large doses of a certain kind of fabulous right there. And now the two have been combined into one super saccharine serving of splendor! Virpi Kätkä, the blonde piece from CatCat released a solo album in Finland last year – ’Reloaded’. It’s dance remixes of old classics, and indeed one song she has chosen to reimagine/rape (delete as applicable to your own taste threshold!) is Alcazar’s ‘Crying At The Discotheque’.
