#30DaySongChallenge - Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate

I genuinely, genuinely cannot think of one. Seriously. There are some songs that I find very difficult to listen to - due to circumstances - but they are part of the fabric of my life and I would never be without them. Day 16 has drawn a blank for me. Once you let a piece of music in to your heart and your life, I find, it tends to stay there. 

Then again, I’ve never been a flakey sort of person. Trends bother me little.

6th April 1974 - 40 years ago today - Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid won the Eurovision Song Contest with a song called “Waterloo”. 

The little-known Swedish Pop Machine known as Abba went on to do a few other songs. You might be aware of their work. 

Oft sneered at, at the time, by the cognoscenti, the quality of the writing and the manner in which Abba changed the very language and techniques of pop music speak for themselves. 

Their 1992 greatest hits album - yes, you read that correctly, that’s 1992 - “Gold” - has so far sold over 28 million copies and is the second best selling album EVER in the UK. 

You don’t hang around for that long by making rubbish. 

They are the epitome of the soul, passion and craft of Pop music - often unbearably poignant, they have been the soundtrack to my life. Unashamedly. 

So,”Happy Waterloo Day”!
