I am simply curious to see who else likes their music. For myself, I have to say that I have loved their hits! Their success cannot be denied - they had hit after hit. But what might be even more interesting is the trivia behind the scenes. Do you know of unusual info that might be interesting? Please post! smile

Milli Vanilli had hit after hit too... New Kids on the Block also.

"hits" mean nothing to me, but heck, when it comes to music it's all about individual taste I guess.

I am a big fan of ABBA thumbsup

I just watched the show "Agnetha: ABBA and After" which was really good.

Before watching the show I did not know that the members of ABBA were already stars in Sweden before forming the group.
If you can catch the show def watch it, interesting stuff.

I know that the two guys from ABBA wrote the music for the musical "Chess".

Dang Chucky, I had to look it up because I totally forgot about that program. I've been watching some ABBA documentaries but have not come across that tidbit of info. Thanks.

Here's Frida doing a Russ Ballard song produced by none other than Phil Collins who is also on the drums and backing vocals:



Oh, and Daryl Stuermer on guitar!

True, but the fact is ABBA remains quite popular 30 years later.

My folks went crazy over them in the 70's and bought about 3 or 4 of their records. I still can pick'em out pretty well when restaurants play them over their muzak systems.
