I really do believe that if you grew up in Australia in the late 70s/early 80s your love for ABBA is almost a part of your DNA! Although in our house it was split between ABBA and Kiss (it was that era after all, and my brothers thought ABBA were for nerds – FOR SHAME!). As I mentioned in last year’s Fierce Females post; Benny and Björn may have been the lyrical and melodic geniuses behind those amazingly catchy tunes but it was Agnetha and Frida who ultimately made you fall in love with them and make you want to shake your booty to all those hits!
I also mentioned that to this day I can’t hear a Christmas carol without thinking of ABBA and now I have to explain. Every Christmas when it was time to pull out the tree and all the decorations it was me and my sister’s job to put it up. I can’t even remember how it started but we would play ABBA as we trimmed the tree together. She’d pull out the cassette’s and turn the hi-fi up to 11 and we’d bop along and use the baubles as our microphones! As I got older I just assumed ABBA was a part of Christmas tradition!! Until I realised, that nope, it was just us being major dorks and trilling away to Mamma Mia instead of Jingle Bells. To this day I love that their songs are catchy as fuck and you can’t help but sing along and do a little seat dance with it too (like I’m doing now!).
I was torn this week between my two favourite songs and went with the frosted blue eyeshadow, I’m a sucker for make-up after all! I absolutely love The Name of the Game, but it’s this song that hits me right in the feels. Happy Sunday peeps and enjoy (also, sorry for the subtitles, I couldn’t for the life of me find a “clean” version!)…
and OMG I FORGOT TO MENTION – I’m off to see Madonna tonight!!!!! If you’re on Periscope hit me up (@RosieRockets80) as I’ll be live streaming some songs. This is my new thing, dollface, I’m going to start filming titbits from the concerts I go to and share them all with you. Great idea right?!
