Nearly 20 years ago, ABBA released a greatest hits CD as well as a video companion under the title ABBA Gold. And we danced like the big ol’ dancing queens that we were. Sure, we were just tiny children, but it was clear that ABBA was deeply infused in our DNA.
Now, technology brings us a new, greater greatest hits album/DVD combo, ABBA GOLD – Greatest Hits (Special Edition). It’s newly re-mastered and truly amazing how great the songs sound and how crisp the videos look. On the DVD, you can even watch split-screen versions of the old vs. re-mastered videos that make it immediately evident how much better everything is in good ol’ 2010. (Just don’t let George Lucas catch wind of this.)
The CD includes 19 classics, including Dancing Queen, Take A Chance on Me, Waterloo, Mamma Mia and the one song we just love to say, Chiquitita (which coincidentally also makes us crave bananas).
There’s even a rare discovery, a 1977 cartoon version of Money, Money, Money, which is so bad it’s fantastic. We’ll always dream of falling in love with a guy named Fernando thanks to ABBA, and now, we can dream of him to a crystal clear soundtrack.
