Leevi and the Leavings was a Finnish rock band that operated from 1978 to 2003. The band consisted of Gösta Sundqvist, Risto Paananen, Juha Karastie and Niklas Nylund. Sundqvist was the leader of the band, he composed and wrote all the band's songs as well as being the vocalist. Sundqvist was a very private person who rarely gave interviews or appeared on television, but for several years he wrote and hosted radio comedy programs for YLE in which he appeared as himself together with fictitious characters. The band's music had a distinctive sound of smooth multilayered synth-pop arrangements with an occasional lead guitar. It was based around Sundqvist's tragicomic lyrics and catchy choruses. Sundqvist's lyrics often deal with the humiliated aspirations and crushed hopes of "little people", as in the song "Teuvo, maanteiden kuningas", which tells the story of a reckless boy with dreams of becoming a rally champion, or "Itkisitkö onnesta". Another recurring theme is bittersweet memories of lost romance, as in the songs "Rin Tin Tin" and "Mitä kuuluu Marja-Leena". Sexual themes, considered from somewhat unconventional points of view, figure in many Leevi hits such as "Sopivasti lihava", "Kyllikki" and "Unelmia ja toimistohommia". Sundqvist sympathized with sexual minorities in the song "Poika nimeltä Päivi" which is written from the point of view of a character of ambiguous gender and sexuality trying to escape an oppressive small town atmosphere. Other hits include "Pohjois-Karjala", and "Vasara ja nauloja". The instrumental "Tuhannen markan seteli" was for many years the theme song of a major sporting news program on Finnish television.
