It's painful, but if it helps to shut Heston up...
This or if we continually deny ABBA songs for this whole thing. Hard to say which would be more satisfying...

Either way I win.

SOS is on another level, an oustanding piece of pop music that encapsulates the genius of ABBA - despair and misery wrapped in delirious melody.

Very much so. Still reeling that Dancing Queen was beaten by that much inferior Breeders song in the last round.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Because I will be able to continually nominate and talk about ABBA.

ABBA all the way. As much as I love the Pogues track it is too 3 ABBA therefore on another level..
You need to calm down on your ABBA enthusiasm I am getting worried about you!!
I blame myself for getting him hooked on Agnetha.

Heston’s commitment to the bit is making me dislike ABBA on principle.

I know im not typical but I can't imagine a scenario where all the other choices are so bad that I would pick ABBA.

Ah, I see. I suspect there's a not-insignificant contingent here that would put up with that just to see you lose the votes again and again. So I guess everyone would win?
