Abba – Waterloo (Leaping Ahead #44)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #44: 160213

[A song from a band beginning with A]

The reason I’ve chosen this tune for today – apart from the fact that it’s a cracking song – is because it and Abba won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with it. But there’s more still – for the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest was hosted at the Dome concert hall in Brighton, UK – a stone’s throw from where I live.

  1. Very interesting. I usually watch at least some of the Eurovision contest on the Internet every year. I haven’t heard much that I liked recently but I like to keep track of it. Never know when another ABBA might come along. For the record, a poll was done not too long ago throughout Europe about what the best song ever to come out of Eurovision was. Answer – Waterloo. Couldn’t agree more. Still one of the greatest pop songs ever. Thanks for the post. I thought this was lost.
