ABBA IS TIMELESS …
Woo-Hoo, you gotta love this, Sweden’s greatest export and legendary band ABBA is considering a reunion in 2014 on the 40th anniversary of their music hit Waterloo. The 63 year old Agnetha Faltskog spoke about a reunion in a recent interview. Easily one of my favorite groups of the 1970′s. Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad will be playing their classic hits for the first time together since the band broke up in the early 80′s and they went onto their solo careers. This is one reunion tour performance I would be willing to pay for. According to the Daily Mail, Faltskog told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag: ‘Of course it’s something we’re thinking about. There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them.”
It is more than 30 years since their acrimonious split, and 13 years since they turned down a $1billion offer to reunite.
But it seems legendary Swedish pop group Abba may take the stage again, after blonde singer Agnetha Faltskog revealed they are thinking about re-forming.
The 63-year-old – who has been seen as the main barrier to a reunion for years – said the group may mark the 40th anniversary of its first hit Waterloo with a new concert performance next year.
One of the best comments I have ever read about ABBA … “ABBA makes my feel like 17 and look like 35, unfortunately my passport says 63.”
How fitting as Barack Obama seems to have met his “Waterloo” as well
The legendary Swedish pop group ABBA is mulling a possible reunion next year, singer Agnetha Faltskog said in a German newspaper interview Sunday.
Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the band’s first hit “Waterloo”, which won them the Eurovision song contest and catapulted them to fame.
“Of course it’s something we’re thinking about,” 63-year-old Faltskog told the weekly Welt am Sonntag.
“There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them,” she said.
My Top 10 ABBA songs, what are yours?
- Waterloo - “My my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender,” he’s not the only one! This video is fantastic, other than the obvious. Check out at 1:02 the 70′s cameras … classic!!! Who needs an iPhone
- Dancing Queen cc- Who didn’t roller-skate to this song with the lights down and the strobe light on? Friday night and the lights are low. Looking out for the place to go. Where they play the right music, getting in the swing. You come in to look for a king. Anybody could be that guy. Night is young and the music’s high. With a bit of rock music, everything is fine.
- Knowing Me, Knowing You - Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa). There is nothing we can do. Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa). We just have to face it, this time we’re through. (this time we’re through, this time we’re through This time we’re through, we’re really through). Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go. Sadly, yes.
- Take a Chance on Me – the video is so Brady Bunch.
- SOS – What ever happened to our love? I wish I understood. It used to feel so nice, it used to be so good. So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.
- Mamma Mia – Mamma Mia, here I go again. My my, how can I resist you? Mamma mia, does it show again? My my, just how much I’ve missed you. Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted Blue since the day we parted. Why, why did I ever let you go? Yup.
- Does Your Mother Now – Hmm, this was a big hit in my high school, wonder why?
- Honey, Honey - Agnetha WoW, ok I admit it, one of my first crushes.
- The Winner Takes It All – What a voice … The winner takes it all. The loser standing small. Beside the victory. That’s her destiny.
- Name of the Game - If I trust in you, would you let me down? Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you? Could you feel the same way too? I wanna know…
Honorable mention, Anni-Frid Lyngstad (solo) - I Know There’s Something Going On
