Astromonkey's current selection is:
Hole In Your Soul
by Abba
I went to "Abba: Super Troupers - The Exhibition" today at the South Bank Centre and really enjoyed. It basically takes you though a series of recreated rooms - a 70's sitting room, the hotel room at Brighton when they won Eurovision, their recording studio, the room Agnetha moves into in the One Of Us video, embellished film clips, memorabilia, costumes etc. and narration by Jarvis Cocker (plus an enthusiastic guide). Bits were almost like an Abba quiz and we were encouraged to dance and sing (I refrained, especially from the singing.)
Interestingly she told us that, in total, Abba only toured for 3 months in their entire 10 year career. Apparently Mick Jagger was bewildered when he heard this - amazed at how successful they had been without constantly touring. The exhibition has been running since December and the guide said she had heard of only 6 people visiting it that had actually seen Abba in concert..
Anyway it was fun and nostalgic.
