"Music is not just a part of my everyday life- I'm surrounded by it every minute. If I'm not stickin an ear out to hear that lovely song playing in a restaurant, then I'm singing five different ones in my head! Music continues to remind me that its boundaries are limitless. When a song brings forth different emotions, that's when I know it's really hit me. When it brings me to tears, or gives me the feeling as though I've fallen in love...I'm in another place where even "inspired" is an understatement." -Haley F#%*in Reinhart

((for some reason, I feel like its weird when people refer to me as my username lol. My name's Megan))

LOL
I know I've expressed that I like music with a "harder edge", but I was raised in Europe, UK to be specific, and ABBA was HUGE there, not so much in the States.

My first 'crush' was the lovely Agnetha Faltskog. I got a lot of guff when my family moved to the states because Americans only really knew 'Dancing Queen', their ONLY #1 in the US, and disco WAS NOT COOL.

What Americans didn't know is they strove to write different styles with every album they put out, which was part of the reason they didn't like to work with American recording companies. They said, in America, if you had a hit, the studio would want you to make the exact type of songs for your next albums. They were artists and song writers first and didn't agree with that kind of thinking. They also were the first band to really pioneer and use music videos because they preferred to write and record music to touring (Musicians first!) thumbsup.gif

Disco was just one of the styles they did, and the timing made it a big hit in the US. They had many #1's all over the rest of the world, 380 Million plus albums sold, behind only The Beatles and Elvis. I am so glad that that 'stigma' is finally gone, and is now being introduced to newer generations who can listen to their stuff without the "Dancing Queen/Disco" stigma. It makes me feel good to see younger people appreciate and proclaim them as a favorite thumbsup.gif

My favorite all time ABBA Song is "The Name of the Game" with the goddess, Agnetha at lead
(Can't find a non VEVO vid sad.gif )



Clip of the song in ABBA the Movie



Trivia: it was made specifically for ABBA the Movie (must have for any ABBA Fan...awesome concert footage, goofy storyline) and is supposed to be about a person falling for their therapist...although I would have never guessed that.

Fugee's also used the bass line for their song



I have an early memory of watching them win the Eurovison song contest with "Waterloo" and really liking it. The punk / new wave scene happened when i was 16 or so which meant I had to pretend to hate all disco / glam rock etc so that put paid to liking Abba for a few years!

Brighton, England 1974. This is when the world first took notice of the beginning of a phenomena. They beat out none other than Olivia Newton John.They knew they had to sing in english to have a shot at winning.

This was actually their second try at Eurovision, they failed to get out of their country's round with their first attempt, "Ring Ring" the year before, in 1973. Incidently, Neil Sedaka was asked and wrote the english lyrics to "Ring Ring"

They also knew they had to dress flashy to stick in people's minds, at the time, people performed in flowy dresses, suits, and typical trendy clothes, so they broke the mold coming at it that way too.



The announcer gets the names all wrong. Don't knock Glam, remember that's how David Bowie started. (aka David Jones, but that name was taken by the guy in "The Monkees")

Compare that early live performance to this performance at the height of their popularity, Australia was insane over them. They Fine tuned every thing, voices angelic. Abba The Movie featured concert footage from their hugely successful Austalian tour.



Rewatching this makes me think this might be why I like Straight Hair Haley in that silver dress in "Tightrope", reminiscent of a young, at the top of her game, Agnetha

I'm from the UK now in the US and was fortunate enough to turn 15 in 1977 when the Punk / New wave began. There was an excellent radio DJ at the time - John Peel - who had a nightly show on national radio and made it a point to play nothing but this new music. A lot of bands would never have seen the light of day but for John Peel.

Youtube has been a wonderful way for me to get reacquainted - I though I'd share a couple of tunes that I've recently reconnected with and for me at least appear to have stood up well to the test of time.

An interesting phenomena back then was the mixing of punk and reggae. Nobody did it better IMO than Stiff Little Fingers and "It doesnt make it allright". SLF were / are from Northern Ireland and at this time Protestants / Catholics were regularly blowing each other up - these guys for sure had a something to be angry about! Here its a little more restrained than their usual but the juxtaposition of raw anger and reggae works great! The musicianship is first class also - bass, lead and drums all give a little extra on this:



The original by the Specials is excellent also:
