Comment: Three soundtrack albums and that’s cool but two ABBA albums chock filled with oldies, and a third that just fell off the tio ten after being there on and off all year. The ABBA story is more European than American, and as 1970s and 2018 -actually much more so. It is a testament to the sheer addictive quality of the songwriting that it actually jumped a generation to be re-discovered in ABBA maniac (like the UKs love of Presley, it is endemic). One more thing, hip hop isn’t ruling or remotely close to it here.
