I can't ever tell with these 70s videos if the vocals are dubbed or live and I'm not going to try any harder to find a definite live one of this song. Anyway blame hj for getting this dang song stuck in my head all day yesterday.
Happy birthday, Tiger.
I found this interesting:
Even [ABBA's] happiest hits encompass more than a few blue notes. Strip away the euphoric strings and rhythms of "Dancing Queen" and their sole U.S. chart-topper would be a much sadder tune, but it's arranged to feel ecstatic: When the harmonies crescendo for that "Feel the beat of the tambourine, oh yeah" chorus section, the frisson between notes is disproportionate to the lyrics. And that's just as it should be; life is full of emotions far larger than their situations.
Can I get SBG into an FMD thread to reply?
If not, everyone just share your last random tens before summer starts in earnest.
The Twins open a suddenly relevant series against Detroit tonight. Thinking good thoughts..
