  1. About music....one of our tradition in Estonia is National Song and Dance Celebration after every 4 years. This is a choir music celebration. Today we had The 12th Estonian Youth Song and Dance Celebration last contcert, and it was absolutely emotional and patriotic day (imagine yourself in the middle of that). We have obviously the most cold summer (the highest degrees by celcius are +10 to maximum +17 in islands). All our country have celebrated together with these young people and children (almost 40 thousand singers-dancers) for few days, and we have proved, that music is a powreful thing, this is a uniting dicipline. I´m so proud. Song celebration video will be soon in Youtube, but I´ll share the dance celebration video with you:

  8. The First Day of Winter! juhuu :) , happy winter!

    I´m not their first fan , but, their music is easy to listen, and the message is clear, and easy to remember and sing along - young people love them (children as well). The most curly guys are a married couple (violin + mandolin). They are always so joyful, as their music . My favourite is (the lyrics -> about the power of music, wich make us to be better people, make us come together and so on :), all the good things :

  10. Hello from Estonia

    I´m very glad to be accepted in this community, thanke you. I´ve been reading this page, and it is quite amazing how long time you have been with Eric Carmen´s music - I´ll try to catch up to you. I found EC music about few month ago, and accidentally from youtube (listened estonian version from the song "All By Myself" - the context is changed, unfortunatelly, but under that video was noticed Eric Carmen ). I loved all the songs I could find from there. Then found this site, and here Im. Sorry, my english is not good, but I use language as good I can as a tool to communicate. For that short time I started to spend more time with EC music. Specially I like album Boats Against the Current. When I listen hes songs it´s like reading a good book or listening an interesting story. Every time I listen those songs, it´s a new experience, the new nuances - for example, it s very exciting to wait those smooth bass notes in the song Marathon Man or She Did It; EC is singing with such emotion, that makes me feel inside in those songs ( the same Marathon Man with that sharp "HAH..."). From one moment I started to Look for live concert-recordings. Interesting to listen hes talk to audience in the middle, how hes voice sound in 1976 , in the year, when I was born. I Wanna Hear It From Your Lips, makes me dance even when I drive to my car I can´t help it. It´s sooo good feeling coming with this song. Of course I like also ECs appearance :). I think, if I ´d born earlyer and if I would been an American girl, from Cleveland for example :), I´d jumped infront the stage and asked for an autograph in year 1976, and so on. I like his hair- really cool hair, and big brown eyes, handsome boy ( musike, nunnuke ) So I´m excited to be here, and try to learn more about his music. I know for sure, that I have found my music for life. That makes me happy already By the way, we have such a snow outside, uuh! - have to wake up earlier to find my car under the snow.
  11. Hello from Estonia

    Thank You Susie, trip went well. My presentation was successful. Delta and KLM treated us well but it´s difficult for me in USA, I kind of get lost there (or the feeling, that a single person can get lost for the others, they dont have time to notice each other or something like that), it´s scares me a bit. I met my friends there from university, and that was just great, so happy to meet people in live , not through internet. The time difference is very difficult to handle - my mind just dont want to understand that 8 hours dissapeare somewhere. And I experienced again the quite considerable culture difference and the philosophy of life of americans and us, people from north of Europe. I love to be at home (it is nice to visit others, but the best place in the world is at home , in tiny Estonia

  15. Hello from Estonia

    I miss you, my EC-friends. I´ve been so busy at work, and when I have time to come, you all are already or still sleeping (in US, the time difference). Next week I´ll be in Minnesota, so exciting and making me nervous also. What if I´ll fail with my presentation, this is my greatest fear at the moment. But...it feels, like I´m coming to meet you (naive idea I know) - so I greet you all in my thouhgts next tuesday in Minneapolis. By the way, we got a new president - the first female president in our history

  21. Hello from Estonia

    75 years ago, more than 10,000 people were deported from Estonia to Siberia by the Soviet authorities. Thousands of blue balloons representing the teardrops of victims were placed at the Freedom Square in Tallinn today (as art installation) , sending a clear message that those deported on 1941 will never be forgotten.
