ABBA Eagle

  • Pin it

ABBA. One of the greatest bands to have ever existed. Although the band broke up before I got to enjoy one of their concerts, they’re in my personal top five bands I wish I could’ve seen perform live (Queen is on top of that list).

But this is not why I’m bringing them here today. As I mentioned earlier, it’s a really special day, and this is a really special music video for our dear friend, Adriana. (did I mention it’s her birthday today? Happy Birthday! once more!) And this is one of her favorite songs (from what I heard, her favorite Abba song, actually). So Have a Wonderful Earth Day!

I keep on being amazed of the creativity and the incredible talents coming from Sweden! (visiting Sweden is one of my dream voyages I hold close to my heart). Winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 was the starting point of ABBA’s huge success. Two married couples (who, at the peak of their fame, got divorced): Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Benny Andersson – the name of the band being formed of the band’s members initials.

Although they never really called it quits (officially, at least), the band is considered dissolved since 1983 and they didn’t appear in public as a foursome until the Swedish premiere of “Mamma Mia!”, the musical in 2005 and the movie, in July 2008 (oh, I loved that movie!) Can you believe they actually refused a $1 Billion offer? (which meant 100 concerts as the old Abba band) Amazing! (more about their story here)

Awww…..thank you so very much!! Yes, Eagle is my favourite ABBA song….:))
I love that group. It’s not ones every day group but ABBA is forever!

I love it my birthday is on Earth Day!

And I dream I’m an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please……………

Thank you, thank you……<3 :*

Oh, I loved the movie too. Sure! Why haven’t I purchase that one? Asap now!
I remember we imagined being Agnetha and Frida. I always had to be Frida because I’m a redhead and a blonde girl was Agnetha. The reunion, not even for 1 billion didn’t happen because of these two ladies.
They showed up together some years ago to be honoured on a Swedish music event and the young audience gazed adoringly at these two who were also very funny. A surprise I found at YouTube :)

Thanks again Kpriss :)
