13 March 2013 - ABBA - Gimme Gimme Gimme (with an Amanda Seyfried bonus)

It just occurred to me that we haven't featured enough ABBA on this blog.  And who doesn't love ABBA?

Sure, lots of people don't love ABBA, I know.  I do love ABBA.  I love typing ABBA.  I love listening to ABBA.

And this song, which is a little darker fare than you might be accustomed to from ABBA, is my favorite ABBA song.  Frida and Agnetha (who takes lead vocal on this with her huge voice) harmonize so perfectly, and Benny and Björn provide an energetic musical background.  Even though the band was starting to implodie by this point, you can still see the significant chemistry that they all still had on stage.

Anni-Frid.  Her name wasn't really Frida.  That's the other A.

This song is so good, it even sounds good when actresses (who have significant singing talent - let's be honest) perform faithful covers.  By the way, I strongly recommend the movie Mamma Mia for those of you who love ABBA's music as I do.

(Yes, loyal readers of Totally Covered, we did feature this song over there in October 2012. We just needed an excuse to post Amanda Seyfried again)
