LOL. That bearded guy is Michael Sheen, a famous Welsh actor from Port Talbot in the south of Wales.

I had a feeling you would get a kick out of this somehow. Good to know!

I'm not sure what the second line is, can anyone help?

Jarŋŋa - Edge of Time
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MR-ly9x9gaw

The last ones who walk Earth are the colorful ones
The humble hearts, pure souls, true warriors, :?:
And I wish you would join,
And I wish you would dare,
And I wish you would stand up,
I wish you would care.

Now we are standing on the edge of our time,
The colorful people put an end to this crime
While the rest point their fingers on someone to blame
Can't comprehend it's their own wicked game.

Well, the last ones who walk Earth are the colorful ones
Eija a lololola, oja a lololola, eija a lololola...
Oh, the last ones who walk Earth are the colorful ones....

Well I heard it at first as "the humble hearts' pure salts to worry us" so... :ohwell:

But could it be something like "the colourful ones / the humble hearts, pure souls, [something], warriors"? Maybe two warriors? Or "humble hearts, pure souls, too, warriors?"

This is a Finnish folk song sung by two sisters and their grandfather. They've got somewhat famous because of their singing videos! They always talk about something interesting or fun after singing, like the grandfather's memories from the old days, but this video had such a great ending I couldn't resist posting it here... :D They've got a gift: a monkey that repeats anything that is said to it. Just watch, and try not to laugh. :ohwell:

Thanks, now I'm going to hear that too.... :silly:
But seriously, I think you're right about "pure".

Now when I listen to it, that sounds right. (But so does "pure salts to worry us", so you never know. :ohwell: )

You're welcome! 8-)

Maybe. It'd at least make sense - not to say pure salts wouldn't be worrisome, but true warriors would fit the theme.

Last night I listened to 69 Eurovision songs in a row (it was for a rating activity on a forum so that isn't as bizarre as it sounds) and it was my first time listening to Eurovision, so I am in an advanced state of brainrot now. It was an experience, but not one I want to repeat.

My friend and I decided to make a late 90s/early 2000s techno/dance playlist because we were super nostalgic for it.
