Thank You For The Music
At 3:55pm I'm boarding a plane to London, England and after a few days there I will head to the center of Melodifestivalen Fever... Stockholm.
It's only fitting to dedicate this post to the greatest band ever to come from Sweden - Abba.
There is simply no denying that Abba is simply the greatest pop band ever. To this day they continue to sell millions of albums a year.
Their music is simply timless and is being rediscovered by new legions of fans every day.
If the only songs you know from Abba are Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and Take A Chance On Me... then it's time you educate yourself. The best way to do that is with Abba - The Definitive Collection. It includes some great songs that aren't on the shorter Abba - Gold album.
As pop fans each of us has in debt to Abba for the fantastic music that we listen to every day.
Although ABBA may no longer be with us as a group, their songs are constantly being covered by modern artists and being given a new twist like the classic ABBA Medley performed at the '99 Brit awards...
