Friday tune time.
So, there’s been some amusement in the mainstream media that amongst John Peel’s amazing record collection there lurks stuff like Abba and A-Ha. Two examples of pop music genius. Why the fuck shouldn’t Peel love that stuff? It wasn’t all Throbbing Gristle and Leatherface, you know.
Anyway, Abba are one of my favourite bands of all time. If you don’t like Abba, there’s something wrong with you inside. Here is one of dozens of classics. Could’ve gone for ‘Dancing Queen’ or ‘The Winner Takes It All’, but everyone always picks them. So here’s ‘SOS’. Funny story, I was once in a band called Cheesegrater and we covered this in a Mudhoney style. Not that funny, I guess, you mibbes had to be there.
