BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Me too, Bill. I think there's something uplifting about the harmonizing in groups like ABBA and the Mamas and the Papas. I guess we're hopelessly old fashioned or maybe just hopelessly old.
Or, in my case, both.
The wife and I recently saw their songbook show, MAMA MIA, at Bass Hall in Fort Worth. It was a blast. Their music is just a lot of fun.
We saw the show in Toronto, thanks to George Kelley, while we were there for the Bouchercon. Great fun.
Thanks for the song, Bill. While my wife is too young to share my love for ABBA, she at least bought me a great collection a few years ago.
Heh. I love me some ABBA, and that song in particular...but good lord, that video's a riot. The costumes, the "sexy" winks, the guys sitting sulkily in chairs while the girls dance around them...classic "WTF?" video. Thanks!
I have that ABBA collection, Ben. Dusty, people have forgotten how to dress since the '70s. My fashion sense was formed by the first Bob Newhart show.
Grew up listening to Abba on a greatest hits double record album collection. Love them still today and due to their resurging popularity my 14 year old daughter likes them as well.
