Re: Why was ABBA so big

They were poppy but fun, especially if one grew up in the late 70's and were young. They still had their detractors then of all age groups, but I find them utterly beguiling.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Did you dance 🕺 in discos to their music?

Re: Why was ABBA so big

I danced on my parents bed to their music with my friends and we would have danced at home party discos.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

How sweet!

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Apparently those lovely ladies were obsessed with Poo. They dedicated a song to him. The dude sitting on the right looks like Paul Williams big brother. Who in turn, looks like cousin Oliver from The Brady Bunch. The 70's, lol :)

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Did you know he was in one of the planet of the apes movies?

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Actually no, I didn’t. I just looked it up, and it appears that he was in the Battle for the Planet of the Apes. I’ll have to check it out. I just remember that it seemed like he was everywhere when I was a kid. Always making guest appearances on the top shows of the day.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Yeah, he was everywhere in the 70s. He is/was a great songwriter.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

I was looking at some of his song writing credentials. I see that he wrote some pretty big hits for some pretty big artists, as well as films. Songs that I assumed were produced by the artists themselves. Glad to see he’s still going strong at 81 (In a few days)

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Another gem. Check out those glitter kitty shirts, and those groovy Go Go boots!

Re: Why was ABBA so big

I have no idea. I just like some of their songs. It's pretty.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

They are pretty shitty bubblegum pop.

I like one of their songs and that's it.

Just because I'm not on THEIR side, doesn't mean I'm on YOURS.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Not really. Their lyrics are deep. Don't let the pop sound fool you. That's why they were musical geniuses.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

This is why I posted a bunch of covers…to give their songs some perspective.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Hi geewizz.

Each of their songs represent something different. It's usually political though. Fernando has significant meaning when I stare up at the stars shinning in the night sky on the beach on the 4th of July.

Leave him alone

Re: Why was ABBA so big

I find it humorous that some people think that.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Yikes!! Well let's not tell anyone that.

Re: Why was ABBA so big

Because people are morons.
