1865 Full Song

Listen to the full song "1865" here!  :D  Frida sounds awesome.  :)

Happy birthday, Stig!

Stikkan "Stig" Anderson was born 84 years ago on January 25th, 1931. The fifth member of ABBA, otherwise known as their manager, will still be remembered even though he is not with us today.  ABBA would not be ABBA if not for Stig.

Happy 4th Birthday, Agnetha Dollskog!

I feel like I've celebrated her 4th birthday before, but that's probably because I got the year wrong last year or the year before.  Today is her real 4th birthday!  Yay!!!!

ABBA - the complete recording sessions

  I just love the new cover.  :D  Those pictures of them are super rare and I really wish I had the complete ones of Bjorn, Benny, and Frida.  :)

Tribute bands, why don't they ever get it right?

I know, I've discussed ABBA tribute bands numerous times, but I feel like doing it again.  :P  Something I don't seem to understand is, why do a lot of ABBA tribute bands get the costumes wrong? 
Compare these outfits to ABBA's original costumes.  I'm more concerned about the girl's costumes...
Alright, so I understand if tribute bands are trying to give ABBA their own personal touch, but could they at least try and look a little better...?

New attraction coming soon - What could it be?

We are very excited to be organizing a special day for our friends and fans! The museum will be open only for you during this afternoon, March 13. Tickets will be released for pre–purchase during January. The day will include:
* We will reveal our biggest attraction since opening!
* A never before exhibited costume from 1973.
* Preview and pre-purchase of fine art photos never exhibited before, by Torbjörn Calvero.
* A unique walk through inside the Polar Studio, with guide.
* Competition; one happy person will also get to sing in a microphone in the studio.
* Get your own ABBA The Museum backstage pass/Friends Card. The card will give you special offers and discounts.
* Premiere of our curator’s audio guide. An ABBA The Museum tour in depth.
*Mingle and drinks

The day at the museum will start around 3 p.m but all visitors are welcome earlier as well. We will be able to offer good pricing on hotels nearby, such as Melody Hotel & Hasselbacken Scandic. Keep posted for updates. A warm welcome and we hope to see you here!

I'm sure everyone is just as excited for this as I am (even though I can't be there).  The new attraction sounds so exciting and I can't figure out what it could be.  However, the never before exhibited costume from 1973 must be some outfit from 1973 (duh).

I'm wondering could these be the outfits?  I don't really see them a costumes but more like fancy clothes that they wore.  (I think Frida did an excellent job making the top for Agnetha.  ;) )














 Or possibly the jumpsuits that Frida and Inger are wearing at this performance.  
There are, of course, these outfits that ABBA wore several times.  :D  I would like to see these on display someday.  Same for the velvet jumpsuits from 1975/76....

I bet it's going to be these last outfits that I just put images of.  I can't wait to find out though, and when it happens, I can't wait to see (via internet, of course)!  :D
