ABBA: Blonde or Brunette?
One for the gents...

Who's your looker in ABBA? (ladies can join in, but the choices are a bit grim).

I always liked the blonde (Agnetha) in my younger days, but looking back, Anna-Frid smokes her (panther eyes, sex appeal). Any views?

RE: ABBA: Blonde or Brunette?
I must say that they were just about the most unhip or uncool looking band in history though. Especially in the early days and especially the two guys. I mean, I love 'em, they were one of the most high quality top 40 acts ever. Masterpiece pop, I really mean that. But that early look and image. What were they thinking? Lolz Compared to them The Osmonds looked like the Rolling Stones! But who cares? I always had Agnetha to look at and pretended that the other three weren't there. Heart

My top 10 Abba faves (in random order)

-The Day Before You Came

-S.O.S.
-My Love, My Life
-The Winner Takes it All

Ah they made magnificent music. If you offered me a choice between ABBA and the Rolling Stones, I'd take ABBA every single time. Seriously! None of that mid-Atlantic phoney posturing. Just great melodies, music that makes you want to sing.

And the Blonde! Heart

It's a matter of melodies vs riffs. I love both. If ever there was an impossibly cool heart and soul rock'n'roll junkie it must be Keith Richards. He grows old on booze and drugs. Give him an apple and a glass of milk and he'll drop death. He's the man. Wink

I agree with britbox and feel exactly as he does. My tastes have evolved since my adolescence.

Here Britbox, Get a load of this. A longer version of 'Summer Night City' with a different start. I was going to put this on my classic alternate versions and outtakes topic but to me, it's the same song but with a different start -
