Those magazines...

I was rummaging through my collection of pictures, when I came across with the funny picture below. All of ABBA members are looking relaxed about the magazines that they're reading, except for Agnetha. It seems that journalists had written a great nonsense about her!

Agnetha: "What?! 'Agnetha was born on April 25th'?! It's Björn's birthday! I can't accept it!"

ABBA and stuffed animals

The ABBA members definitely loved to take pictures with stuffed animals. The boys didn't mind being photographed with such toys and the girls seemed to like them very much.

Enjoy this kind of pictures below and see more of this sort on Like children and In London with a little fan.

Kimonos and teddy bears!

Colorful and fancy stuffed animals

I can't see what stuffed animals are these, but I think they're bears...

So in love...

While ABBA walked down Berlim streets in 1975, Benny and Frida showed all their love to each other - as usual.

Frida gives a loving kiss on her beloved one...

... then, it's Benny's turn!
Or maybe he had kissed her first... I don't know the exactly order of these pictures!

Our Princess' birthday!

Our dear Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad is turning 65 years old! In this precious day, I wish our Princess - in every sense of the word - all harmony and love she deserves!

To honor her, I'm posting the tribute below with my message of love to this great human being. 

On November 15th, 1945, a very special person was born...

... she became a very sweet and shy girl with a great dream...

... to be a singer!

However, she hasn't only captivated people with her beauty or her voice...

... but also with her lovely smile...

... her kindness...

... her charisma...

... her sympathy...

... her integrity...

... her strength...

... her concern about important issues...

... her ability to overcome adversities in life and keep going smiling...

... among many other things that can't be put into words, but into feelings

A very Happy Birthday, dear Frida!

Mamma Mia! in Brazil

Mamma Mia! is now here, in Brazil! The premiere of the most famous musical in the world took place today at Teatro Abril, in São Paulo. As the tradition says, the songs of the musical were translated into the language of our country, so we can see Mamma Mia! in Portuguese. The most proeminent actors and actresses of the show are Kiara Sasso (Donna), Pati Amoroso (Sophie), Saulo Vasconcelos (Sam) and Andressa Massei (Rosie). They will perform the musical until December 19th.

Well, I hope I go to São Paulo as soon as I can to see the musical!

On November 5th, 1976, ABBA-Dabba-Doo was aired in Sweden. It was the first Swedish television special devoted to ABBA, which was largely filmed on the Viggsö island. The special featured interviews with each ABBA members and with the whole group, as well as performances of some of their most recently songs. Tiger, When I Kissed The Teacher and My Love, My Life (this one only with Agnetha) had promo clips especially made for the special.  

Below, you can enjoy some pictures from ABBA-Dabba-Doo and the special itself with the interviews, the promo clips and the performances.
