Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
‘Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
My father loved the music of ABBA. When we were kids, he made us watch ‘Abba in Switzerland’ several times on TV. Our TV set then was black and white, inside a wooden cabinet with a door and a tiny keyhole. Abba’s music was a fixture in my childhood. I was in fifth grade when I wrote ‘The Winner Takes It All’ in my notebook, in cursive, and memorized it.
I leave the review of Mama Mia to my friend because she can do it with flair. But if you ask me, I had a blast watching it last night at SM-Mall of Asia’s Cinema 3. 🙂 Before we were ushered inside, I overheard some balikbayans telling each other that they’ve seen the musical in Broadway plus other shows like Rent, Legally Blonde and Les Miserables. I also noticed that there were many foreigners who were about to see the movie. The last time I was inside a cinema was four years ago with my grad school buddies. I think it was julia Robert’s Monalisa Smile.
When I posted about Mama Mia! here, I knew I won’t be disappointed. As I expected, peopled ‘twirled’ and sang along with the music. And leaving the cinema won’t be complete without humming ‘Thank You For The Music’.
