As an 80’s kid, is there anyone who is not excited about the news? ABBA is making a two-song-return after 35 years. They are (not were, still) one of my favorite bands and I’m proud to say I still listen to their songs (even sometimes sing them on #smule).
One of two songs of the group (Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad) is “I Still Have Faith In You“ and is said to be released in december this year.
“It resulted in two new songs and one of them, ‘I Still Have Faith In You,’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.”
Now it all comes down to how the songs are going to be. Will they have the same 70’s taste, as we like to hear from ABBA, or will it have a more 2000’s sound? If so, will it break the Abba spell? Would be enough to break the spell anyway? Or does it really matter how good or bad the songs might be?
ABBA are a Swedish pop group, formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad: the group name derives from the first letter in each of their names. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1982. ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 at The Dome in Brighton, UK, giving Sweden its first triumph in the contest. They are the most successful group to have taken part in the competition.
Well, personally I don’t mind much! There will always be plenty other songs of theirs that are ready to watch on YouTube. There I’m leaving you with one of them. Let’s thank them for the music 🎼
