I've been listening to ABBA for most of my life! My grandpa had all of their songs on his computer and he'd always play them and I've got all of them memorized word for word by now XD

I can't help but sing along whenever I hear an ABBA song on the radio. I don't listen to too much pop music anymore, but that stuff just sticks in your head!

Good music is timeless. It shouldn't really matter when the song was recorded or what time period it's from. Good music never goes out of style. Many songs from the '80's are like that.

Me! I find the songs in the past very soothing to listen to and they even have meaningful lyrics. I'm not saying though that the songs being played at present aren't good but the old songs just don't seem to fade as the years go by. Some of those songs even have their singers long gone but the legacy of their music lingers on.

I do at times. They make me go all nostalgic. And when I look now I am amazed at the beauty of their lyrics.

I was raised listening to the songs of the 70's and 80's. Any road trip I go on, a majority of my playlists are from that time. Also the only concerts I have gone to have been classics: Ringo Star, John Fogarty, Elton John, and Paul Simon. This year I am seeing Elton John and The Eagles, but I'm also seeing Maroon 5 and Ed Sheeran.

I was born in '95 but have been fortunate enough to have a great uncle who taught me all about the awesome music of the 80s. "Chiquitita" is one of my favorite if not my favorite ABBA song. I also got the chance to see The Who during their 50th anniversary tour.

I do! A lot of those songs from that era are like staples. You never get tired of listening to them - at least I don't. When you listen to the instrumentation, the arrangement of the chord sequences, not to mention the lyrics. Most of those lyrics are clean and wholesome - carrying a positive message or instruction. They are truly 'oldies but goodies'.

I'm a millenial but I love the songs of Abba. I became so hooked to their songs because of my favorite movie mama Mia. You must watch it if you haven't yet, and rest assured that you'll be a fan of their music as well.
