FlinterFile: ABBA- Dancing Queen

Some songs don’t need an introduction anymore, and I think this is one of them. Read the rest of this entry

Song of the day: ABBA- Summer Night City

Yes, a seventies hit today! And one with a strange story. The song was intended to be the lead single of the album Voulez-Vous. However, it never appeared on the album! In recording and mixing the song, ABBA was not happy with the sound of it. They could not find what was wrong, and after some months, they decided to still release it. That’s why it was not included on the album. Whether they liked it or not, the public had no problems finding the single and buying it. In most countries it entered the Top 5 after some weeks, and it has even charted as number one in some countries! I think it’s a great song, maybe one of their best. Enjoy

Song of the day: Roxette- How Do You Do

They are just an awesome group from Sweden. It seems that one in a while, a big fence disappears around that country, letting good pop music out. I mean: ABBA came from there, Roxette did, Ace Of Base did, Avicii does, etc. You understand what I mean? They make great music, but only once in a while it comes out. Roxette came out in the open and had one hit after another. Joyride, The Look (great song, could be the other Song of the day), Listen To Your Heart, and the list runs on. Next to the Look, I enjoy this one a lot:

Roxette- How Do You Do!

Song of the day: Abba- Happy New Year

Happy new year!

Finally, it’s a new year, 2013!
And I thought: Let’s put on a song which brings my message: ABBA with Happy New Year!

Well, I will watch some more fireworks, and then off to bed! And we’ll see later about the rest of the songs!
