I hear they are doing a sequel too.

I mostly listen to metal but I'm a sucker for a well-choreographed dance number.

He refused to admit that ABBA came from Sweden.

Needless to say we listened to more Clash and XTC than ABBA.

27. When I was young I was a peer pressured

classic Rock snob. I would not admit that the first pop star I ever listened to was Christopher Cross.

Now that I am in my 50s, don't have that peer group anymore, and have access to Amazon Prime and Spotify; I find I am listening to bands that I would never have been caught dead listening to in my teens and 20s.

I will give ABBA a try.

http://www.theguardian.com/music/shortcuts/2017/jul/04/abba-lifted-political-gloom-1970s-exhibition

When I think of ABBA, I think of Dancing Queen, which Art Bell used every night on the old
Coast to Coast AM radio show back in the 1990s.
I love that song; and I, too, had a huge crush on Agnetha

and I'm no spring chicken either.

Trump makes George W. Bush look like FDR or JFK.

63. I always thought the song "Fernando" was about the Spanish Revolution, but....

since it mentions the Rio Grande, I guess it could be either Spain or
from Mexico.

I suppose Spain has a big river somewhere.

Tikki
ps...I am a Dodgers fan and sometimes in the ballpark they would play "Fernando" when Fernando Valenzuela took the mound.
Aah...sweet memories.
