Gracias Por La Musica

Swedish supergroup ABBA, in Spanish.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear. In the next life, I wish to be reborn as Benny Andersson (he's the second from the left in this photo). It's not because I long for the riches and fame that go with being an international pop star, or even so I could get to pose for pictures wearing silly purple jumpsuits, although those are both nice fringe benefits. No, it's so I could, if even for a short time, be married to my idol, Frida.

Ah, Frida. While the other boys were fixated on cutesy blonde Agnetha, it was you, the sultry dark-haired member of ABBA, who became the object of my teenage fantasies. Your smile, so beautiful and sincere. Your eyes, so delicate and inviting. And oh, your voice, exotic and sexy, like a thousand golden angels on reverb pumping through my cheap Panasonic speakers at maximum volume. I'd give every record I own just to spend a moment near you. True, you eventually became a freak with big hair and painted-on eyebrows, but I loved you just the same.

Anyway, here's a record of ABBA songs recorded in Spanish, which is a pretty clever trick when you consider that the members of the group regularly recorded in four languages besides their native Swedish. Talk about bending over backwards to cater to us lazy Americans.

I love this album, I have the record and the tape, now I want the cd, but I don't want to pay $38 for it. I could had bought the cd when I was in Buffalo New York for $14.99 but I didn't and I am kicking myself for it. My favorite songs are Al Andar, Hasta Manana. I wish I can buy it in Vancouver Canada without paying a fortune and to bad not one spanish song is not on the 4 cd set Thank You The Music. (05-02-2003)
