MMm... Bubble Gum...

Let's all take a moment out of the busy, grim world to consider the wikipedia history of ABBA, everyone's 70's guilty pleasure. We had several ABBA recordings on 8-track when I was a kid, and to this day "Money Money Money" reminds me of deep woods off, little league baseball, and swimming pools. I'm sure most readers will go, "ABBA?!?... EEWwww!!!" but I defy you to resist humming the melody to "Chiquitita" if I put on the "Greatest Hits" CD.

Yeah, yeah, whatever, and I'm sure you never ever listen to pop music either.

Except when nobody's around.

ABBA rules. I've got ABBA Gold - 17 great tracks that'll take me back to the day...

I think I know all the words. It also helps that Amber and I play the CD when we're home improving...

"Winner Takes it All" is my favorite.

And boy, did ABBA make the difference in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" or what?

Oooh, great movie! I just saw it. And seeing the actor who played Agent Smith and Elrond in drag was amusing.

Smith, in Precilla?!?

You know what, until you commented on that I would never have remembered it, but now that I think about it it's absolutely right.

Learn something new every day.
