After a few false starts, fighting the kids for TV time – they got a Wii and that has been the focus of everything for the last few days – and my ability to misplace things, I finally got to see Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia!
For the most part I enjoyed the movie. I love Abba songs (Muriel’s Wedding) and I think Meryl Streep is fantastic.
Now, for my nitpicky pickiness: Who edited this movie? There were scenes that seemed totally unrelated. It looked as if someone had a copy of an Abba Greatest hits CD, demanaded that dances were made to the songs and yelled “Go!”
That aside: I am digging Abba. Again.
So soundtrack for a lazy Wednesday:
Lay Your Love On Me
I Had A Dream
Take a Chance on Me
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme
Money, Money, Money
No apologies will be given if you get Dancing Queen, Chiquitita or Take a Chance on Me Stuck in your head.
