Burn those Lips


I heard this on the radio this morning
A real blast from 1979
Not one of their most popular hits
But as a gauche 17 year old 
I loved it
Enjoy

  1. The songs from my gauche and innocent youth carry great memories for me too. I can never hear 'Running Bear' (the Big Bopper) without seeing the low lights and massed bodies of my first Sunday School dance. All the boys would stamp in time on the floor in the 'u-ga ga ga' bits until the whole building shook and the needle leapt out of the track. Happy times!

  2. Nor for me, I'm afraid - but I do have a sentimental like for 'I love to Love' by Tina Charles!

  3. I thought Australia was the country that made ABBA the huge success it became but I don't know that song. It must be one of the few that wasn't a hit here. I still love their music but my family just roll their eyes at me.

  5. For reputational reasons I am precluded from expressing any fondness, past or present, for ABBA.

    2. I may be gay friendly, and like disco music, and dance music, but NO ABBA! EVER! and no wire hangers either!

    3. Oh, A.M., I so do NOT want to give you a black mark, which would be your very first, but you test me severely with this sad revelation. Quite simply, ABBA was the best thing ever to happen to pop music after the Fab Four. There - I'm sorry but now you know!

  10. I don't remember this one. I thought I knew every ABBA song. It's bouncy and cheerful.

    Love,
    Janie

  11. I don't remember this one either. ABBA were Lady Magnon's favourites (her being Swedish an' all), so I have to watch Mama Mia on a regular basis. Yes, we do sing along.

  14. Abba are wonderful, we had a Abba tribute band at our village hall back in Great Haseley and they had the whole village up and bopping in minutes. Even the vicar was twirling around ;-)

  16. Was never a boppy kind of girl so Abba didn't feature on my playlists much. Much more of a rocker. My 1979s included:
    Dr. Feelgood - Milk And Alcohol
    The Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me Down
    Rainbow - Since You've Been Gone
    Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall
    Toto - Hold The Line
    Supertramp - The Logical Song, or Breakfast In America
    Squeeze - Up The Junction

  17. I didn't discover ABBA until I was 60 years old and bought a new car with a killer sound system in it. "Does Your Mother Know" played as loud as it will go will send everyone in the parking lot into a dance mode (I've tried it.). Love, love, love ABBA.

  18. I was never a disco fan, but always smiled when i heard ABBA songs. Himself bought a CD of their greatest hits and put it on in the car's CD player. We sang along with every song and knew nearly all the lyrics.
