Holy Crap! It's Abba Day!

" Jared, do an Abba post!"

"Jared, how come no Abba?"

"Jared, why do you hate Abba?"

"Hey can you draw me an Abba challenge card? You know... it's for my kid."

For once and for all... Shut Up.

This is a challenge to perform an Abba song at Karaoke. Personal favorite: "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" for the simple fact that I love oddball punctuation in long song titles. With all those exclamation points it leads one to wonder if Stan Lee or Al Feldstein wrote the title for them. "Take a Chance on Me" is a fun zippy number that anyone can sound good performing while heavily inebriated. Almost like a Steinman... without the wave crashing emotional intensity of course.

Heres an excellent example of how to perform Abba...enjoy! Embedding don't work on this but the link leads to

And here's... I can't... I don't know what to say about this. I've fallen into the dreaded irony feedback loop. Maybe it's awesome? I mean it could be right? Right?

Good? Bad? It's all Abba so it kind of floats above petty human judgements in silvery bathrobes of celestial light shining rays of Swedish Harmony from beautiful hive minds.
