This Friday is the new album of Cher, ‘Dancing Queen’, at the record store. The title betrays it all: the album is full of covers of Abba songs. ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘SOS’ call Abba fans, who suspect that the multiple aesthetic, treated 72-year-old with her new album, her Waterloo will experience. Also the reason for Chers choice to know the fans of the legendary Swedish group, but all the time: “Money, Money, money” – though that number is not on the plate.
I’m not (only) in it for the money, defends Cher on Zappa way: it is “for years” fan of the gendergelijk divided four Sweden. “I’ve seen the ‘Mamma Mia’-musical on Broadway three times seen,” says the ex of Sonny. Completely convinced to do something with Abba to do, hit the Californian winner of both an Oscar as an Emmy and a Grammy already after watching the film ‘Muriel’s Wedding’, an Australian comedy movie from 1994 about a young woman who is not a guy touched, and takes money from her parents to go on vacation and “the true”.
At the shooting of the film ‘Mamma Mia! Here we go again, the love for Abba at all touch. In this picture, a sequel of ‘Mamma Mia’, plays Cher, the grandmother of the main character Sophie (role of Amanda Seyfried) and languisheth they the songs ‘Fernando’ and ‘Super Trooper’. That singing was “more difficult than I had thought”, but Cher was “incredibly happy with the end result”. Red thread in the film: Abba-songs.
The undoubtedly courageous – music critic of the German press agency (dpa) who adhere to the listening to the album ventured, looks has one big advantage. After listening to ‘Dancing Queen’ was the man attacked by a great nostalgia for the velvet voices of ABBA’s A’s, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
You can, however, poison to take that the album is a success. Possible Cher there en passant, that once again a generation of young people to Abba repent. The Swedes continue anyway number one in drag queen shows.
