Irwin Goodman (real name: Antti Yrjö Hammarberg, 14 September 1943, Hämeenlinna – 14 January 1991, Hamina) was a popular Finnish singer.
He recorded over 200 songs, most of which were his own compositions, with lyrics written by Vexi Salmi (Alias Emil "von" Retee).
Irwin Goodman started as a protest song singer in the folk boom of the mid-1960s,
his humorous songs often mocking any authorities becoming evergreens among Finnish people.
Irwin got into continuing troubles with Finnish tax authorities, had ever-worsening problems with alcohol,
and his escapades were eagerly followed by such sensationalist magazines as Hymy.
