Please, Say It Ain't So

Today I woke up after a wonderful nights sleep, made coffee and sat down by my computer to read the morning paper where I had a bad awakening.
One of the top headlines, just a little after reports of the super-typhoon Haiyan and its distressing path of death and destruction in Southeast Asia, there was an article with the headline "Fältskog Open to ABBA Reunion".

Seemingly the Swedish singer Agnetha Fältskog, in an interview with the German weekly Welt am Sonntag, has let it slip that a reunion is "of course something we are thinking about" to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the band's song Waterloo (with which they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974).

The world of music has scarcely had time to recover from the last time they were around. It seems we must hope that Benny Andersson stands firm in his resolve. Benny a year ago said,"No, we no longer exists. We have not been around since 1982."

I always thought that Benny seemed like the sanest and most level headed of the former band members. Stay strong, Benny!
