Hearing ABBA in surprising places

27 April, 2007

Have you ever heard ABBA songs in unexpected places? I recently had two surprise encounters with ABBA music while on holiday in America.

1. while walking through the Star Arcade (shops and eateries) at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ was playing on the background music system. Perhaps not so surprising as Mamma Mia! is playing at one of the MGM Grand’s sister hotels in Las Vegas.

2. while standing in front of the Virgin Megastore at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, Florida, and while I was talking to my dear friend and fellow ABBA fan Merrick on the phone, ‘Mamma Mia’ came blaring out of the store. Several more ABBA songs from what I figured was disc one of The Definitive Collection played throughout the store over the next half hour.
