Tapio Rautavaara


The multitalented Tapio Rautavaara (March 8, 1915 - September 25, 1979) of Finland was successful and famous as an athlete, performing artist and actor. His mellow, sentimental recordings are still popular today. His version of the Johnny Cash mainstay I Walk the Line, given the title Y├Âlinjalla (and transformed into a song about a long haul truck-driver), is one of the most frequently played songs on Finnish night-time radio.
