Mamma Mia, the one ABBA song everyone know… Apart from the other one, of course.
Okay, so I caught myself lip syncing along with this one – what? It’s a classic! Everyone knows this one. And everyone knows the timings, the tone and the words. It’s just one of those songs that’s ingrained into the hearts and minds of everyone, whether you want it to be or not.
Seriously, play it in a bar anywhere in the UK and at least, I repeat, at least a half-dozen people will mouth the words. And at least half of that will do it out loud. It’s human nature.
So, the piano work is enjoyable to the audible palate, as is the guitar played by Mr Guitar Man. Thank you Mr’s Piano and Guitar Men. Throw in the lyrics, words that everyone just knows – they just fuckin’ know ’em – and it’s a winner.
Only think I want to know is this. Why is one of the guys wearing what looks like 1950’s housewife attire with frilly cuffs?
