Abba, the best group ever

Yes!!! It is!!!

I so totally love their music. Actually Abba was one of the first english albums i ever listened too.. maybe thats why i like them so much! It was i think 82 or 83 or something.. the year i.e. And my dad got this tape .. 2 tapes actually , Abba and Boney M. And they still play perfectly well.

Ever since i have heard them.... every month, every year... and i just like them even more!!! Its like Pg Wodehouse. Cant ever imagine someone not liking them!!!

My favourite Abba song - Thank you for the music... I love I do.. I love Fernando too..And what about Dancing queen...Winner takes it all is awesome... And take a chance on me.. hmmm.. so difficult to choose...one shouldnt too!!!! As a kid i used to love Hasta Manana... i think thats the first song i heard.

I am listening to Abba as i write. They are too good. Actually i was watching this show on Travel and living - the show is about Abba and the movie Mamma Mia. And of course they played most of the songs... i was sitting singing at the top of my voice... you just cannot help but sing along or dance along!!!!! In the movie Mamma Mia the actors have all sung their own songs... meryl streep was really good.. a singer i.e.. so was colin firth!!!
This is the second time i watched the show... it just puts you in this exuberant mood.. no matter how you were at the start - sulky or whiny or angry or tired.. my mood totally changed... for the better i.e. and both the times!!!!! Unfortunately i could not watch the Abba show when it came to Bombay.. next time perhaps!!!

Take a chance on me (song i am listening to as i write)
If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try
Take a chance on me(That's all I ask of you honey)Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
'Cos you know I've got
So much that I wanna do,
when I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there,
afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free, Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me, Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry, know I'm gonna get you
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry, I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It's magic
You say that I waste my time but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go
'Cos I love you so

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free

Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
Honey I'm still free

Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Goodness. I got a shock reading this. The first 2 english tapes at my home were also Boney M and Abba. I still remember it was the voulez vouz album. LOVE them.
