Growing up I loved listening to Abba. I could sing the words to all their songs. One time my friend and I were convinced we saw ABBA – now remember, I grew up in Bolivia – I’m pretty sure that they never toured there. We were so convinced that they were there, however, that we stalked these poor people who we thought were them….following them to their house on our bikes and trying to figure out how to meet them. Crazy times.
A few years ago we purchased the best of Abba Video. We also had just purchased a new DVD player. As we watched I was cracking up how weird the videos were – but the funniest part was that the whole thing was so close up – you’d see one of the girls wink and her eye would fill the screen, or they would focus on her lips and they would fill the screen. The crazy costumes, the very seventies make up, it was really funny. After a while, though, it got annoying that it was so close up. I made fun of how they made videos back in the day….until I realized that I had pushed a zoom button on our remote that made the whole thing a “close up” shot. 🙂
Watch the video at your own risk. I have no idea what the tin foil is all about….
What were the bands back in the day that you were a big fan of? It’s okay to admit it, really.
