"Muistojeni laulu" - Irmeli Mäkelä

The Finnish Final was held on February 14th at the YLE TV Studios in Helsinki, hosted by Aarno Walli, Erkki-Mikael, Risto Vanari & Marion Rung who had represented Finland in 1962. Each of the songs was performed twice - once with a small band, and once with a large orchestra. The winning song was chosen by the votes of 10 regional juries.
