Who still listens to ABBA and other songs from the '80s?

Post by Belynda White » 16 Aug 2017, 13:07

Personally, I love music and even though I'm a '90, I totally enjoy music from the '70s and '80s.

What about you? :D

I like a lot of music from that era, although my favorite would be Queen.

I am not sure what the songs of ABBA are, but I listen to songs from the 80's. I love mostly country music since they are the music you need to relax. I also love Queen!

ABBA is a beautiful group, two ladies and two guys. Their songs are so good that most movies still use them as theme songs. They were super amazing. You can Google them and listen to their album. I do love the '80s generally and I also love Queen. Michael Jackson too, of course! :D

Me! I still listen to ABBA. They are my aunt's favorite too! My favorite songs from them are Honey Honey, Take A Chance, Fernando and Hasta Mañana. I grew up listening to those songs. And when I miss them I play their music from time to time. Bringing back lots of good memories.

ABBA, Ace of Base... I never could differentiate these Swedish bands when I was kid. But, I still listen to them.

I also grew up listening to them because my dad loved them so much and I still get extremely excited when I hear those songs again.

I could totally differentiate them because my dad always left a label. :D

I still listen to most if not all of the 80's, though i was not norn in the eighty's. Actually my friends tell me im an old person trapped in a younger person's body because i listen to more older music than what plays today. I love Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Guns N Roses.

I love ABBA. My dad my dad played it every morning when we were kids, alternating with Jim Reeves. My favorite tracks are "Chiquittita" & "I have a dream"

I love music from the 70's. These type of music are timeless. I have listened to Abba, this group totally rocks.

Thanks to my mum, I'm just 20, but I can never be lost if I find myself in a place where older people are grooving to Abba. I love them!

I do, even though some of my friends say I love oldies. Well, I would say a lot of oldies are goodies and ABBA music is one of them.

I love the group, their music and videos. They are my father's favorite. Incidentally, the name of my village is Abba. I like their music because they are so lyrical. Take a Chance on Me still resonates somewhere in the recess of my mind... But do I still listen to Abba? No. However, I will like to listen if I have the opportunity to do so.

I listen to them a lot. Like Chiquita. That song has refused to walk out of my life.?
