Mamma Mia! The Movie

Familiar with this?

"Mamma mia, here I go again. My, my, how can I resist you?"

And this?

"You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen..."

How about this?

"Money, money, money, must be funny, in the rich man's world"

Yes, they are ABBA's songs and ABBA is one of the most renowned groups in the 70's and 80's.


How would a guy in his early 20's know these songs which were sang before he's even born? Well, it's all the influence from parents. I was forced to listen to Light&Easy [Lite.fm's old name] whenever I sit in the car.

After a while, I started enjoying the English oldies despite the fact that I was teased by some friends for tuning into Lite.fm. Hmmph!

On 25 September 2008, everyone in Malaysia will be able to catch all the famous ABBA songs on the big silver screen - Mamma Mia! The Movie. It is an adaptation of the famous Mamma Mia musical that has been watched by more than 30 million people around the globe.


Mamma Mia! The Movie revolves about a mother, a daughter and three possible fathers. The daughter tried to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day.

The lead actress is Meryl Streep, who also acted in Music of the Heart - a heart warming movie based on a true story about a violin teacher trying to adapt to a new city and bringing music to the schoolchildren.

So, I'm really looking forward to see another good performance of Streep and of course, a long list of non-stop musical songs that will make everyone hum along.

Mamma Mia! Billy, out.

Note: If you didn't know, Nuffnang is giving away free tickets to watch premiere screening of Mamma Mia! The Movie for Glitterati members. Check out the details in Nuffnang's blog. I hope I'm among the lucky ones. =P
