24 February – As I got outside I smiled to the dog

I’m loving today’s birthday. But more of that later. Our favourite TV show often throws up writers who keep coming back. It could be because they’re good writers. Or it could be because they’ve nothing better to do with a song they wrote.

I think today’s birthday boy Stig Rästa is a good writer. He’s done his stuff several times now, and the time he actually sang one of is compositions is seen as one of the best form his country. He wasn’t there alone, but you can probably guess which of the two performers is Mr Rästa. He happens to be back in the game in 2019. Will he better this song, which finished third in its semi-final and seventh in the Grand Final. And if you’re still no convinced, just look at the tension.

Stig is 39 today.

Palju sünnipäeva, Stig!
