The other one loves the night

Tapio Rautavaara recorded Reino Helismaa’s ballad Päivänsäde ja menninkäinen (The Goblin and the Ray of light) in 1949. The song tells a story of two lovers who have to live apart from each other, for the Goblins eyes  can’t take the sunlight and the Ray of light would quickly perish in the darkness. The new fourth course written to follow the tragedy, questions the laconic way defeat is presented in the original narrative.
