Endless Loop: Take a Chance on Me

abbaHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Take a Chance on Me” by ABBA

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my almost four decades on this rock, it’s that someone who claims not to like ABBA is not to be trusted.

I’m not saying that the legendary Swedish pop hit makers necessarily have to be your thing, or that you have to listen to them all the time or anything like that.  But seriously, how can you not be at least a little in to their infectious brand of damn near perfect pop music?  It’s practically meant to be mainlined straight into your earholes, sugary, syrupy nuggets of sound.

And it’s for everyone too: music connoisseurs and laymen, pop fans, rappers, punk rockers, metal-heads*, jocks, nerds, stoners, tweekers, old people, young people, and so on.  You are not too cool to enjoy some ABBA, to bop to it, to dance to it, to move.  I’m dancing in my seat right this moment as I write this.  Come and join the party and jam to my favorite, “Take a Chance on Me.”

Don’t be that guy that doesn’t like fun.


*Full disclosure: My brother is in a punk/metal ABBA tribute band called stABBA.  As you can imagine, they’re ridiculous and excellent.
