Song of the day

"Matelot", by The Renegades.

The Renegades were a British beat group from the early sixties. Evidently they had some kind of a following in Finland. (Go figure.) I had never so much as heard of them until yesterday, when we went to see "Le Havre", the new film by Aki Kaurismaki. (If you have any spare time this Easter and it is showing in your town, you should see it. It won't last long.)

This song bookends the film.
