Abba reunion

Furillenites who enjoyed the Abba party at the sim back in February might like to know that the awesome four sang together again – for the first time in thirty years! – at a private gala in Stockholm at the weekend.

There is no ‘live’ footage as yet, but here is a wonderfully emotional picture from the event …

 

abba reunion

 

They sang Me and I, which goes like this …

 

 

The question on all of your lips – why that song? – may never be answered. But I can’t resist reproducing the lyrics here, because lines such as …

“Sometimes I have toyed / With ideas that I got from good old Dr Freud”

… are beyond priceless.

Bless them all.

Sometimes when I’m mad
There’s a part of me that seems to be a little sad
Sometimes when I scream
There’s a voice in me that says, “You shouldn’t be so mean”
Oh no, oh no
Part of me is acting while the other stands beside
Yes, I am to myself what Jekyll must have been to Hyde

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

Sometimes I have toyed
With ideas that I got from good old Dr. Freud
Nothing new of course
It may seem to you I try to break through open doors
Oh no, oh no
I just wanna say a lot of that applies to me
‘Cause it’s an explanation to my split identity

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

Me and I…

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I…
