I’ve been spending the last 20 minutes trying to decide whether of not to type the first “B” in the Swedish group ABBA’s name as a normal letter or as the official stylized backwards “B” (as in ᗺ). I mean, I want to be official and all but at the same time I don’t want to come across as geeky.
Hmmm… too late?
Even though ABBA (or AᗺBA) is known primarily as a ’70s band, they actually had six songs appear on the HOT 100 chart in the ’80s. “Chiquitita” is one of those songs. It made it to #29 in 1980.
Maybe, just maybe, when this group rolls around again in this blog I’ll use the backwards “B” in the title and see if anyone remembers today’s conversation…
Memorable lyric: “So the walls came tumbling down and your love’s a blown out candle. All is gone and it seems too hard to handle.”
