Tribute to Pirkko Mannola

When I watched this video for the first time, Pirkko Mannola singing the song "Pikku pikku bikineissä" (Itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini) I could not stop laughing. I didn't like it - at all. It was very irritating! In the end I couldn't watch it entirely, and it made me almost hate Pirkko Mannola. I regret that!

Later I watched an old finnish movie, starring Pirkko Mannola. I was like "oh no, she's the bikinigirl!!" but in the end of the film I was amazed. Her singing was amazing (not so irritating anymore), and her style! When I watched her singing some other song than "pikku pikku bikineissä", I just had to like her. She is so stunning. And I can even watch "pikku pikku bikineissä" -scene without laughing! :D

Now I respect Pirkko. I love her voice, and her style in old movies! She is just so vivacious and bright, she brings the sun :) I regret for not watching finnish "Dancing with the stars" in 2009 - Pirkko Mannola was there dancing! She "won the silver" :)

She won Miss Finland beauty contest in 1958!
