Can It Really Be Thirty Years...?

I was looking through the BBC Radio 2 website and came across a tribute to Abba ~ a musical extravaganza called The Ultimate Abba Chart, featuring thirty of their top UK singles; album tracks and rare recordings.

Growing up in the late 70's/early 80's; I was a huge Abba fan and I still enjoy their music, so how could I resist listening online? I used to own most of their albums on vinyl records, but they are long gone after many moves across two continents. I replaced most of them with Forever Gold; a compilation of Abba Gold and More Abba Gold; which was released on CD in 1996.

Listening to their songs brings back so many memories and I still remember the words! I sing along ~ hopefully when no-one else is listening ~ and sometimes get up and have a boogie! Abba's music is full of energy and it still has the power to lift my spirits and brighten my day.
