“Waterloo”

Posted by purplemary54 on November 17, 2013

My brain’s a little dead from watching football all day, and an afternoon nap that left me a little sleep-lagged.  So here’s a little mindless fun for everyone.

Next year is the 40th anniversary of ABBA winning the Eurovision contest with this song.  First of all, it’s sort of unbelievable that this song is forty years old.  Second, there was a story circulating this week that ABBA is actually considering reuniting to mark the anniversary.  After decades of saying no to millions and millions of dollars to bring their special brand of bubbly Pop back, ABBA might actually perform together again.  Now that would be interesting.

    I had the biggest crush on Anni when this song came out, but I sure hope they stay in retirement.

    • I’m of two minds about it. On one hand, it would be cool if they could put aside any animosity and make joyful noise even one more time together. On the other hand, they might suck. Plus, I’ve always kind of admired the way they just refused to give in to nostalgia and commercial demands.
