When you think about it Ring Ring, So Long & I Do I Do ... were all perfectly sound commercial stuff that deserved to chart higher but there seemed to be an expectation within the industry that when it came to Eurovision unless you were an established artist it was One Hit Wonder time ( In the case of So Long I had to special order it from my local shop as despite getting a TV performance (TOTP I think) non of the big stores seemed to have even heard of it !)
I have all their singles and think they are still great.How could you not like them yeh and all that bottom wiggling you just could not take your eyes off them and not forgetting the girls they were something else.??
It really annoys me when people say "They're Sh*t" or its "Homosexual Music" .... Er no. Bjorn and Bennie were very very good writers. We're talking about two people who were writing the lyrics in a second language and with things like "The Name Of The Game" or "Winner Takes It All" is f^%king brilliant.
They churned out some of the best pop songs ever written FACT. If you love them or if you hate them you still have to give them up most respect. Especially as they broke from something as shite as The Eurovision Song Contest. How many other people have survived more than one single from that tragedy?
