ABBA to Reunite? Moon Has Updated Their Song List to Reflect Their Age
In 1981, I had a chance to go see ABBA in Omaha. I worked at WDAF, Kansas City - just about four hours away - and a bunch of us were fans of the Swedish group. I don't remember why we decided to not go but I do know I was crushed when the next year they stopped touring, singing and recording!Benny Andersson and Bjorn UIvaeus wrote melodies with sappy lyrics and a great disco beat which I loved. The ladies, Agnetha Faltskog (blond) and Anni-Frid Lyngstad (redhead) sang with such power and feeling. And, to me it was fascinating that they sang phonetically, not knowing enough English to sign the tunes naturally.
Now, comes word they may reunite for a 40 year celebration of "Waterloo."
I can't believe it because they have never done it. They don't seem to dislike each other or have animosity. It's probably cause they're so dern rich they don't think about it.
If they do, it will be a huge seller. Many of their fans will want to hear the following great hits. Now, remember ABBA is now made up of seniors.
I have called upon my world-wide spies to provide me with their new set list. Here is what I have uncovered so far: (in alphabetical order)
