Music Monday


Sorry I'm running late today... usually I think about this post on Sunday, but I just didn't get around to it.

Today, let's talk ABBA! This was a group I was familiar with from elementary age because my mother came from Denmark, and while I was visiting Denmark and grandparents around aged eight or nine, we happened to see ABBA on the TV.

So some fun facts about ABBA--

1) They are the second best selling music group of all time after the Beatles.
2) ABBA was the first group to come from a non-English-speaking country to enjoy consistent success in the charts of English-speaking countries.
3)  They won the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 at the Dome in Brighton, UK, giving Sweden its first triumph in the contest and were the most successful group ever to take part in the competition.
4) ABBA is an acronym of the first letters of the band members' first names.
5) The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 15 March 2010.

I have loved their music since that trip to Denmark, even when it wasn't so cool to be an ABBA fan--you know those junior high and high school years. And I love them to this day, although I haven't listened to them in a while.

Probably the most known/popular ABBA song is Dancing Queen.


Two of my faves include...

Lay All Your Love on Me



and Does Your Mother Know



Are you an ABBA fan? What you're favorite song??
