I was on my first overseas tour when I connected with this song. I was unpacking and organizing, and flopped this album (a gift from my brother) on the turntable. That's right, the turntable. By the end of the song, I was a sniveling mess.
I don't know how this song, crafted in a divided Europe, and sung pre-Glasnost, can be more relevant today than it was when it was released. Somehow, it is. If we ever switch anthems, I'll vote for this one. Even if it is sung by a Swedish guy who obviously doesn't dance. And written by Abba.
Move over, Dancing Queen, you are hogging the floor.
