Re: UMT 2012: Genre #2 - 70's Pop

Am I really the only ABBA fan in this forum? Stop being so serious...!

Yeah,they're OK,just not in the top 5

Probably not top ten for me, even though they have improved greatly in my view since the 70's when I grew weary of their over-played sugary sweet offerings.

I am, but they were #6 or #7 for me. 70's pop is one of my favorite genres and I think I own the entire peak catalogs of all of my top 5 plus Abba.
