Congratulations, ABBA!!

Hi Friends.

It's me, Koobie's Mom.

On Monday night, Anni-frid Lyngstad Ruess, Benny Andersen, Bjorn Ulveaus, and Agnetha Faltskog (ABBA) were inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, an honor they truly earned.  I have been a huge ABBA fan since I first heard "Waterloo" in 1974 and I was ecstatic as I watched them being inducted.  While ABBA's melodies are catchy and the harmonies of the women singers are gorgeous, it is the powerful mezzo-sorprano of Anni-frid Lyngstad that is the group's strength, I think.  Though years of serious and careful listening (this was long before I got Koobie), I developed a deep admiration and appreciation of Frida's awesome range, soothing tones, and seemingly unlimited vocal talents.  And, if you watched the induction ceremony on Monday night you saw that Frida, at age 64, is still quite beautiful and carries herself with dignity and class.

Frida also has a fascinating life story, from her birth as an illegitimate German/Norwegian war baby deep inside the Arctic Circle to the tragic death of her daughter in a automobile accident in New York State.

For a special treat, watch the following video of Anni-frid early in her career, before she joined ABBA.  You'll see what I mean.






Thank You for the Music!
