Anyway, when Agnetha decided she had enough, and went into seclusion in her native Sweden the band ended. For decades, I've dreamed of the day when Agnetha would be tempted to return to the studio, perhaps for a full ABBA album. It's not like any of them need the money. The music of ABBA continues to be popular to this day, through original albums, but also in thanks to the West End London play and NY Broadway play Mama Mia...and then the film of the same name. Despite rumors of offers of a billion US dollars, the members of ABBA have, as yet declined to do a reunion tour.
My hopes have been raised with the new album from Agnetha Fältskog. She was the one member who wanted nothing to do with being back in the limelight. I've pre-ordered her new album on iTunes, and downloaded the single When You Really Love Someone. I love the song and can hardly wait until the rest of the album is released.
I'm in London at the moment, and as it turns out, Agnetha was here doing some promotional visits for her album. WOW. Life is but a dream at times.
If you are an ABBA fan, visit her website and check her out on Facebook too. Holy Smokes. If ABBA ever did reunite, I might have to become a groupie and travel the world to attend every concert. You have no idea what a huge ABBA fan I am...I'm seriously happy to hear from Agnetha again.
