ABBA Lives!

Thanks in part to the release of Hollywood's rendition of the Broadway smash hit Mamma Mia, men across America are letting out a collective groan knowing that they'll be expected to take their respective wives and girlfriends to the theaters upon its release on July 18 (the same day bromances everywhere are to unite for The Dark Knight). Based on the Tony Award-winning production, Mamma Mia is heavily rooted in a tradition that gave it life in the first place: the catchy music collection of the Europop sensation ABBA, an acronym for the group's members (Agnetha, Björn, Benny, Anni-Frid). As reported on the July 7th edition of Mike and Mike in the Morning, an ABBA museum will open in 2009, giving the masses the chance to enjoy ABBA's true-blue splendor. Further investigated on the show, by co-host Mike Greenberg, was man's futile attempt to bash ABBA's musical stylings, only to find himself tapping his feet and singing along to ABBA lyrics, regardless of how long he has been a man-card carrying member of the collective male fraternity (man's man Mike Golic couldn't help but jive to every ABBA track Greeny played for him). Presented to you here are several timeless, if not hypnotic, videos of the ABBA persuasion. Bask in all of its Swedish pop cheesiness!
