Songs of Summer!
It might not make sense to most, but ABBA songs make me think of summer. Why?
As a child we would vacation each year in BC, which was an 8 hour drive from our house. We would all cram into our silver Chrysler with red interior, get out the snacks, and pop in our Abba Voulez-vous 8-track to listen to (it was either that or Ronnie Milsap the whole way - which wasn't always a bad thing - YOU ROCK, RONNIE!).
I would kneel facing the back window (no seat belt laws back then), lean my head on the back dash and make up my own stories that went along with each ABBA song as I watched the prairies slowly turn into Mountains as we traveled. I especially loved this song:
It made such an impact on me that I even sang this as a lullaby for each of my girls. Cheesy? Maybe. But it has meaning for me. It takes me back to my childhood summers, and carefree days!
Abba will forever make me think of summer!!!
