Confessions -- Bec's turn

I was an ABBA fan. I got the Arrival album for my 10th birthday. I wanted to be Frida - because she was brunette and there were so darn few brunette role models in the 70s. Yes, I actually thought that way when I was 10. I am shocked and somewhat ashamed at how many ABBA songs I know off by heart: verse, chorus and coda, without even knowing I know them. Why didn't anyone grab me and teach me Latin instead? That is all. mtc Bec

In addition to having an equally shameful ABBA addiction, I have one name for you. John Denver. Sigh.

I had to learn Latin and I've never seen the allure of ABBA, still, I'm not sure I have the authority to absolve you from this affliction.

ABBA and John Denver? Bec and Kim, you must have been living with my family! Bec, I am impressed with your social conscience at 10. I was 7 and *really* wanted to be Agnetha -just because she was blonde. Let's face it, our kids will grow up knowing all the words to the Wiggles/Hi-5/Playschool. Is that any better?

I used to love ABBA as well. Did you see that ABC tv special on ABBA a couple of years ago? Bono was talking about how complicated the songs were in their simplicity.
When I was about 10 my best friend and I used to play at being ABBA and our chook shed was the sold out stadium. Those poor chooks - their ears are probably still ringing!! ;)

My brother and I used to do choreographed routines to KISS songs. With tennis rackets as guitars. Tragic on so many levels.
