    April 1956 … September 1962 … April 1974

    On these dates one solo singer and two groups changed the face of music worldwide …

    April 1956 Elvis Presley’s 1st hit record “Heartbreak Hotel” becomes #1

    September 1962 … The Beatles recorded their first single “Love me Do” and on the flip side “P.S. I Love You” … But it was their second single “Please Please Me” that made them their first #1 hit …

    April 1974 ABBA won the Eurovision Song Festival with “Waterloo” …

    ABBA was a Swedish-Norwegian pop music group active between 1972 and 1982 The band comprises Benny Andersson( Sweden ), Björn Ulvaeus ( Sweden ), Anni-Frid Lyngstad ( Norway ), and Agnetha Fältskog (Sweden).

    In my opinion ABBA were bigger than Elvis and The Beatles … of course the fact that Agnetha and Anni-Frid were very easy on the eyes helped a lot …

    Gonna go see Mamma Mia the movie next week … can’t wait …

    This is my all time favourite ABBA song …

    Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
    You're enchained by your own sorrow
    In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
    How I hate to see you like this
    There is no way you can deny it
    I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

    Chiquitita, tell me the truth
    I'm a shoulder you can cry on
    Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
    You were always sure of yourself
    Now I see you've broken a feather
    I hope we can patch it up together

    Chiquitita, you and I know
    How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
    You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
    You will have no time for grieving
    Chiquitita, you and I cry
    But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
    Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, Chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, Chiquitita

    So the walls came tumbling down
    And your love's a blown out candle
    All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
    Chiquitita, tell me the truth
    There is no way you can deny it
    I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

    Chiquitita, you and I know
    How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
    You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
    You will have no time for grieving
    Chiquitita, you and I cry
    But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
    Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, Chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, Chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, Chiquitita

    Elvis is da king. I like ABBA too. The Beatles dress funny and had bad haircuts.

    So were the Be Sharps. In fact, it was the title of their second album:

    Neither God nor Jesus, should be mocked or made fun of.
