FMD: End of May

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.
