I know the forum is for Queen and I hate to steer off the topic here (wait, no I dont.
I love ABBA'S music it's divine........
But how come all (most) their videos are so cheaply made and dumb?
Because the first and only ABBA video I ever watched up until now, Dancing Queen, was pretty cool.
I never even knew the rest of the videos were so corny until I watched a couple on Youtube just now.
Not only this but, the singers in ABBA are not what I had them pictured as looking like.
Everytime I ever heard an ABBA song (up until tonight that is) I had the lead singer looking as something totally different and Benny and Bjorn as being tall and dark haired. I even had crushes on the two guys. Until I saw them.
Also, I THOUGHT they were from Germany. But alas they are from Sweden. Everything I ever thought until now about this pop group has been an illusion.
I'm probably going to lapse into a mild form of clinical depression over this.

Well, partly I think the videos suck just because they were doing them early on, at a time when great ideas hadn't emerged yet. Their career was over around the time of MTV even starting. That plus they used the same dude for most of them.. Lasse Halstrom (sp), who later went on to be a decent director of major films.

I dunno, the clothes were bad too.. a lot of 70s clothes were bad but some of the glittering+bad shit that ABBA wore just looks hiddeous now.

And indeed, Benny & Bjorn shoulda been behind the scenes people and left the girls to be seen only.

The blond Agnetha was almost always hot though. Man, the fantasies I've had...

I almost forgot the most important point:

The videos don't have enough shots of corpses in them. That's why they suck.

It was the 70s, most videos were made on the cheap.

How much do you think all the Queen ones cost in comparison?

Most of the early Queen videos were shot on a stage. Except for Spread your wings and We Will Rock You. And I realize they must have been mimed....and they may not have cost that much to make but at least they were done in taste.
That's my opinion anyway.

There's just something....HUMILIATING to watch two pairs of people standing facing each other and miming words to each with cheesy expressions on their faces throughout an entire video.

Hey Stoner, you should watch "Muriel's Wedding". It's a fun movie and there's lots of ABBA music, including one bit where one of their routines from a video is recreated ;)

You shouldn't believe profiles they are all made up.
Fairy King, next time you fly Continental, look for me.
I'm the buxom curly haired blond with the big, blue eyes. I also have a light colored brown mole just above my lip on the left side. When I smile there's the slightest gap between my two front teeth. Wink at me and I'm all yours.

Yes I had to edit that. Never give out your true identity.

Yes good thing they don't require gender checks in the screening process.

I likie ABBA and I know what they look like even though I was like 3 or whatever and that they Swedish!!! And how do you have a crush on 2 people you have no idea what they look like or something!!


You can develop an ideal about someone based on their voice or something you read about them or an obscure photograph that doesn't really bring out all the physical qualities of that person right up front.
Anyway it was just a statement of satire. Don't take everything so seriously.

And like OMG quit saying 'like' like every 3rd word or something....like.

Yes it has an inch long hair sticking out of the end of it. It's all stiff and spirally, like a pubic hair.

I think that maybe you don't really talk like that in real life.
Anyway back to the topic. It's amazing what a little 'outside counseling' will do for you. I have completely gotten over my Abba fetish and now I have moved on to something else....with the help of my thrusty shrink.

There is no such thing as general knowledge except what is inside my head.

That maybe the way you speak but you would probably find it alot easier to type if you omitted a few likes.
Unless you're just trying to be funny? In that case OK I appreciate a little humor.
