It’s Sunday.

Normally, here is where I present the opening musical break. Today, we gonna change it up just a tiny bit. I’m sure you are shocked by my randomness.

On August 26th, 2021, ABBA, yes, that’s right, we are going to talk about ABBA, shocked the world by announcing…

ABBA Voyage on sale November 5th, 2021.

Some background here is needed I think.

As you dear readers are already aware, I am a huge musical movie fan, and if you didn’t know that, you do now.

My first musical journey started when I was 3 years old…

Now, I don’t recall the whole movie at 3, I remembered the “shall we dance,” and that’s about all. Oh, and the bunch of kids. It wasn’t until I was older that I really understood the movie at all.

But I do recall being hooked on the idea that people would just randomly break into song.

Fast forward through, Annie, through Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Fame, Evita, I mean, yeah, I’ve seen them all at least one time.

My all time favorite is/was Singing in the Rain, though, the scandal when I said to my mother, I thought Fred Astaire was a better dancer than Gene Kelly. You’d have thought I said I was a communist!

It’s true, to be honest, that Kelly, was the better trained dancer, but, cause we’ve established there is always one somewhere, Astaire had a swagger about him, that Kelly, just didn’t have. Yeah, I said it.

Anyhoo, moving forward to 2009/2010-ish, my sister-in-law, ex-now, but during the early 2000’s she would come over to my house and we’d do movie night, sometimes, it was three nights a week, but that’s a totally a different story-time.

Now, I grew up, understanding who ABBA was, but I was never really exposed to their music, but my husband? Well, he’s a fan, for all the feels they inspire from his childhood, because his mom, was a fan.

So, one Friday night, my sister-in-law brings over….

And let me just say, the fun we had on that Friday night, listening to ABBA’s music sang by some of the best actors we grew up watching, was epic. It was fun.

My husbands favorite.

Like normal, I have too many favorites, but it’s between two.

This is just a fun cougar song. That isn’t really a cougar song.
This has all the feels. All of them.

Now be warned stop here, if you don’t want the sequel spoiled, just skip this next video…

And with that we turn it over to the ear worm song, that everyone loves to love and hate, because it’s a ear worm, you know the one…

I’ve only listened to their new songs, twice, so far, and I have to say; out of the two, I like this one the best…

And we will end my Sunday Music Randomness on that note…

This is an Open Thread.

P.S.

Shoe shopping was successful. Also, my son and his family have all escaped the covid-19 scare and tested negative for the virus. Thank all of you for your support. You will never know how much it means to me. 🥰😍🥰
