That is all, needed to get that off my chest.
gay, everyone loves Abba.
I also despise them. It comes from my wannabe gay stepfather who forced ABBA down my throat as a teenager. I say hes gay because gay people are the only people who like ABBA.
also needed to get that off my chest.
is a TUNE
they suffer from the same half dozen songs of their oeuvre being played to death
they have some gems and some stinkers
I personally love 'The Visitors' and 'Head over heels'
I realised this when my flatmate was playing them last week.
where i said the same thing, but here it goes.
ABBA are a band that are most damaged by their 'legacy', in that they suffer from over-exposure and are now most synonymous with either rowdy hen parties or shitty musicals. However you cannot deny accomplished and brilliant pop songwriting.
I honestly prefer them to almost all the chart pop I hear nowadays, as well as Every Band Everyone On Here Likes.
Johnny Foreigner? Ha. Abba? Better.
SOS is brilliant.
my friend played voulez voulez the other day and i said i liked it not knowing it was actually abba - glad i can get that off my chest..
AFTER WEDDING PARTIES.
