ABBA Mp3 Karoke – Resurrecting the Legend

Posted in ABBA MP3 Music on October 25th, 2007

Although the Swedish pop Supergroup ABBA dominated the European and Australian pop charts in the late 1970s and early 1980s, their days in the sun were long over Internet, PCs, and Mp3 technology were still the stuff of science fiction. So ABBA Mp3 karoke downloads would have to wait for the 1998 advent of Winamp, the original free music player, when web-linked music lovers around the globe took it upon themselves to set MP3 download sites, and start passing on copyrighted music at no charge.

In less than a year, Napster had appeared, and will go down in history as the most notorious of all the Mp3 software applications. Napster gave any music fanatic with the inclination to do so a way of locating and downloading almost any music floating around in cyberspace. Not only that, with its peer-to-peer, or P2P capability, Napster allowed its users to link their PC hard drives and share the music they had downloaded, creating a kudzu like effect among Internet music lovers which soon spanned the globe.

Because a large percentage of those music lovers were also performer wannabes, it was a natural progression for them to use the music they had downloaded as a basis for their forays into the karoke craze which had also spread outward from Japan during the 1980s. As the craze spread to more and more nightclubs and bars, having both the latest hits and rock classic tracks available to be transformed from vocals to instrumentals was a great money saver. Among the most popular songs for this purpose were ABBA Mp3 karoke downloads.

The Karoke to Your favorite ABBA Songs album was released in 2005. It contained the background tracks for 18 of ABBA’s best-known songs, including Dancing Queen, Fernando, Waterloo, and Take a Chance on Me, and is now available either as an ABBA Mp3 karoke album, or as separate tracks.

Interest in ABBA’s music is almost certain to experience a revival in 2008, with the release of the movie Mama Mia! starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. The original Mama Mia was a stage play, a collaborative effort between ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, and British playwright Catherine Johnson. It managed to weave together twenty-two of ABBA’s biggest hit singles into a single plot, and while the critics were not convinced, Mama Mia! was an enormous audience favorite.

The remarkable singability of ABBA’s music, which accounts for the popularity of ABBA Mp3 karoke downloads, had the theatergoers warbling all the way home, and Mama Mia! lasted for over two thousand performances on Broadway. Even though they disbanded long before the Age of Mp3, ABBA clearly found the secret to creating music with a remarkably wide appeal, and their songs are tunes you just can’t get out of your head. But then again, you don’t really want to!

ABBA – the History of a Rock Phenomenon Part 1

Posted in ABBA History on October 12th, 2007

When the musical film “Mama Mia,” based on the smash stage musical  built around twenty-four of  the 1970’s Swedish rock phenomenon ABBA’s best loved songs is released in 2008, it is sure to cause a huge revival of interest in their music. ABBA was a group whose legend has continued to grow more than a quarter of a century after they recorded their final song. They were so successful, in fact, that their music is still standard fare on the playlists of thousands of radio programming directors.

ABBA took their name from the first letters of the names of their members, Agnetha Falkstog, her boyfriend Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and his girlfriend Anni-Frida Lyngstad. All four of the members had started very early in life in the Swedish music industry, but it was not until 1970 that Ulvaeus and Anderson paired to produce their first album, Lycka.

They caught the attention of Stig Anderson, a Swedish record producer, who encouraged them to enter a song in the Eurovision Song Contest preliminaries, and in 1972, their entry Say It with a Song was accepted. The song, performed by Lena Anderson, placed third in the competition, was a tremendous success in Sweden, and started Bjorn and Benny experimenting with a new sound which emphasized the vocal talents of their girlfriends.

Their musical technique, which they termed The Wall of Sound, eventually won them first place in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with their song Waterloo, which took the British music charts, and those of most European countries, by storm. ABBA was invited on a European tour and showed up on many of the important television shows, and when Waterloo hit number six on the American charts, their album ABBA was also released in the US. But in spite of the success of their singles, the ABBA album found surprisingly little success with the American audience, possibly because there seemed to be no real effort to promote it.
