Thank You For the Music, The Songs I'm Singing

I love ABBA. I mean, I really love ABBA. I saw ABBA - The Movie. I owned several of their records. Okay, I was really young when all this occurred, but that doesn't take away from the fact that I loved, and love, ABBA.

I've seen Mamma Mia! every time it's come to my city on tour. I saw it once in NYC. Naturally, I had to see the movie. I waited for the chaos of opening weekend to pass and on my half day off from the day job, I went to a matinée. And I'm glad I did because I have got to see this movie again! And paying matinee prices means I can afford to actually go again. And go I will! I see a girls night in my not so distant future - a night of music, eye-candy, belly laughs, and maybe a tear or two. Ah, the fun!

If you haven't seen this delight of a movie, well, why the heck havne't you? Embrace your inner dancing queen and go for it! You know you want to.

    My husband, Bob, plays drums for our church and summer theatre (this year it was "H.S. Musical")
    School starts in 2 weeks for staff, so we are taking a little hometown vacation. Bob & I will see a "Mama Mia" matinee, and I know we will both enjoy it.

  2. I hope you and Bob enjoy Mamma Mia. It's so worth watching. Seriously! LOL

    Have a great hometown vacation. It's nice to relax and where better to relax sometimes than home. *grin*

  3. I liked the movie.

    However, I have to add, for something completely different, Batman was really great. I was surprised. I really enjoyed the last movie, but I think this one surpassed it. There wasn't a dull moment and there wasn't anything that didn't contribute to the plot(s).

  4. Music is always a must for my husband and me. When we see a movie, we pay as much attention to the music as the plot and characters.
