long drive mind flipout

I had to do a long drive today, mostly on tedious state roads, very little interstate highway. Sometimes the mind begins to waffle. Something unfortunate happened. ABBA popped into my head in a non-stop loop.

–If you change your mind, I'm the first in line. Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me.

–feel the beat of the tambourine, oh yeah.

–Don't go wasting your emotion, lay all your love on me.

–Mama mia, here we go again.

–Buenas noches adonde ir, todo listo para salir (intro to Dancing Queen in Spanish).

It happens. Maybe it will stop soon.

    You know the good stuff. :up:

  3. Some more ABBA in Spanish:"quiero verte sonreir, para compartir, tu alegria Chiquitita."I collected most of their songs in Spanish as well as English. It was yet another one of the bizarre learning tools that I used.

  4. Do you have any links to Spanish-language ABBA recordings? 😉

    I don't have any at all. My ABBA Spanish collection is on LP and 45 or I'd rip 'em to mp3. Somewhere on some hard drive, I probably have a downloaded mp3 or two. I'm going to start looking when I get home.

  6. Dear Lord – if ABBA ever popped into my head like that I'd probably have to tear my brain out. Not a fan of the ABBA. Matter of fact, I adore Meryl Streep, but have refused to suffer through "Mama Mia!" – think I'll go to my grave w/out having experienced that!!!:insane:

  7. :insane: "Mickey" is one of those silly songs that gets inside your head and won't leave for days…trying to not let it infect my brain as I write this. "Love Will Keep Us Together" and "Afternoon Delight", however…:cry: Oh, the humanity..! Still, not as bad as the dreaded "You Light Up My Life" by Debbie Boone, Leo Sayer's "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" (God, how I hate that song!) or that stupid "Morning After" song from "The Poseidon Adventure"! S-C-R-E-A-M!!!

    If ABBA pushes you close to the edge, here are some even better suggestions:–Captain and Tennille – "Love Will Keep Us Together" (avail. in Spanish)–Starland Vocal Band – "Afternoon Delight"–Toni Basil – "Mickey" (also in Spanish)All are real jewels. :whistle:
