I said to myself, “I would like to see a video of my favorite ABBA song, “Take A Chance On Me,” being played on my favorite instrument, the ukulele.”
And for once, the internet let me down. You can’t have everything you want, I suppose, and I’ll make due with the 20 billion videos of every other ABBA song, of which is this one.
Yeah. I like ABBA. I’ve been a music snob too, I know how it goes. But while I can prattle on about the obvious historical influences in each new band, while I can claim I only love respectable, notable musicians, I have to admit that at basically every level of my being their is a fairly sizable portion of me devoted to liking really catchy pop songs, no matter how dumb they are. It’s the same part of me that owns two Kate Nash albums and knows all the words to that new Ke$ha song.
I’m ALMOST done apologizing for that part of myself. Almost. Not quite, though.
