With apologies to other ABBA enthusiasts, the entirety of McCain's music selections show clearly just how old and out of touch he is as a presidential candidate.

Cheers,

People who liked ABBA when they were popular were out of touch. Like me and Bill.

Sadly, I've been out of touch since about 1959.

Somebody liked ABBA because all of the millions of records they sold. It's like a drug addiction that nobody will admit they have. Somebody is going it because the sales are so high. Nothing wrong with liking ABBA. My parents listened to them so I grew up listening to them. I still like their music. The artists of today aren't necessarily going to be popular 20 or 30 years down the road. I say like who you wanna like. I would think it weird if McCain liked a bunch of musical acts of today. He's in his 70's.
