Blog year 1
17 March 2008
One year ago today I started the ABBA World blog, as an extension of the ABBA World site.
Since then the blog has outgrown its origins, adding news, historical articles, critical reviews and much more. One of the highlights of the first year was seeing the ABBA World blog among the nominees for ABBA Plaza’s ABBA Site of the Year.
If this is your first visit to the blog, or if you’re a regular visitor, why not take a few minutes to revisit some of my favourite posts over the past twelve months. Or just take a browse through all the previous posts.
- DVD overload – about the flood of unofficial releases
- Not like that – why the MAMMA MIA! movie won’t include a new ABBA song
- Still my favourite song – since 1975
- The ABBA flag – decoration at 1977 concert venues
- ABBA Simpsonized – ABBA as Simpsons characters
- The first ABBA record – it wasn’t ‘People Need Love’ and it wasn’t ‘Waterloo’
- ABBA after ABBA – Frida, Agnetha, Benny and Björn revisit their past
- ABBA today – the former ABBA members in 2007
- ‘Dancing Queen’ cameos – ABBA’s classic appears in other songs (which leads into some interesting comments about technical aspects of ABBA’s recording)
- B-sides – lost classics or throwaways? – the songs hidden behind the hit singles
- Thursday, March 3rd, 1977 – ABBA’s first Australian concert
- An unusual ABBA record – a semi-regular series
