To Mr. Conan O'Brian and Co,
Hello from several voices around the world! No, this isn't someone with Multiple Personality Disorder, though that would make for an interesting guest, wouldn't it? Nope, I'm just an ordinary American with some extraordinary friends from all over the world, and well, we need your help.
No, we're not asking for money or fame, or to help with some great cause to save the world. Actually, scratch that last statement, because I and my friends truly feel that music goes a long way to heal hearts, souls and minds. The music I'm writing about comes from a little band hailing from a country that you, Mr. O'Brian, came to visit and did a show about. I'm talking about Finland, and the music is made by a band called Poets of the Fall.
Poets of the Fall is without a doubt the most unique, refreshing rock music on the planet. I may not be a music critic, but I can tell you that their blend of catchy melodies, powerful rhythm, and thought-provoking lyrics are a breath of fresh air in the rock music scene. This is something that is so desperately needed, especially in America, and so this is why we have created this petition. You have the power to bring this band to the attention of America and thus, the world.
All of their songs are in English and are unlike anything you've heard today, primarily because of the very different musical backgrounds of the core 3 'Poets'. They have released two albums to this date, and their first platinum selling album "Signs of Life" is one of the most successful self-produced and self-distributed albums in the history of Finnish music. The band has won several awards which include the 2004 Game Audio Network Guild Award in the "Best Original Vocal Song – Pop", two Finnish Grammys, aka. 'Emma Awards' for "Best Newcomer of the Year" and "Best Debut Album of the Year" and the "Best Finnish Act" at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards.
So, if you are willing, please have Poets of the Fall as your musical guests. You can visit their websites, www.poetsofthefall.com
to hear just how inspiring they are. If you do bring them to play on your show, then truly, you'd be doing the world a favor.
I have to admit, I really do like this cleaned-up version better (with one minor correction.) Thank you for your help. Okay, I can't do it now, as mySpace is banned here at work, but I'll send this to the American MySpace page and see if they can do anything with it. I haven't gotten a response yet, but I'm not going to give up. As the old saying goes, the squeaky wheel gets the oil!
