    Default Hello from a 80s music lover

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a new member to this website.
    I'm 19 years old and am currently a student of Tourism. I love music a great deal, both playing and singing.
    ABBA is probably my favorite band of all time. How much I like the way the band was formed, as well as the style of music they played. For many times I wish I could meet "a Bjorn Ulvaeus, a Benny Andersson and of course a Anni-Frid Lyngstad" to play music and sing together.
    So, anyone here is interested in this idea? Or even just talk about the music during the 80s and the way that special persons meet (just like destiny) then to work out great melodies?
    I'm looking forward to any reply!

    I have some regard for Abba and followed their career through the seventies eighties ..............I remember then winning the Eurovision song contest in 1974 although I had come across the individual members long before that.

    Hope you enjoy the site !
    Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

    It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
    Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
    It's the strangest elation
    I can't describe it
    Oh it leaves a man weary
    It makes a man frown.

    Hello Nomilk, and welcome to MD.

    I'm not a huge Abba fan, but have an Abba Gold CD in my collection. This disc is a wonderful example of writers having the ability to churn out high quality Pop hits under extreme pressure.

    Hope you enjoy the site.
