17 April 2013 - Frida - I Know There's Something Going On

Anni-Frid Lyndstad was one of the A's in ABBA.  She more commonly went by Frida.  She still does, I suppose - she's not dead.

She also had one of the biggest post-ABBA solo hits of anyone from the group.  Clearly, she made a clear break from ABBA by finding a harder rock sound.... with the help of Phil Collins.... which probably explains the heavy drums.  Frida, to her credit, had a huge voice and could easily carry the rock sound just as well as she harmonized with her former bandmates.

As a bonus, here is Frida... er, "live"... performing the song on Swedish television from 1982.  I tried to find an actual live performance, but all I could find was lipsynched. Enjoy.
