Music video

Written by Finnish rapper Mariska,[1] the lyrics talk about the singer being far away from her loved one and how she asks the wind to blow there "where my sweetheart is"[7] (directly in Finnish "missä muruseni on") — in order for her to be in touch with her loved one through the wind. The music video for the song was directed by Mikko Harman and made available on October 27, 2010.[citation needed] The video begins with the singer walking on a suspension bridge. Then the scene moves on quickly indoors with lyrics beginning while the singer is lying on the attic floor and singing how she went upstairs to sleep "to be closer to the wind" and how she hopes the wind will blow soon. Then the chorus begins with the singer seen by a window. The next verse begins and Vartiainen is seen standing and lying on a rocky beach looking towards the sea with an expression of longing on her face. Then the singer sings the chorus twice while the sky becomes cloudy and she sings more passionately standing on the beach. The scene is interspersed with quick shots of Vartiainen standing on the suspension bridge. The video ends with a clearing sky and the singer sitting on the ground, looking into a puddle on the beach.[8] In February 2011, Jenni Vartiainen won the Emma Award for Music Video of the Year with "Missä muruseni on".[9]
