Friday Fun Facts

Friday Fun Fact is brought to you by the music world. Today someone in music history is celebrating a birthday. Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad, better known as Frida- from the group ABBA, is celebrating a birthday. Actually, she’s celebrating her birthday tomorrow, but close enough. I bet you are wondering what ever happen to Frida? Or maybe you are wondering if Frida was really in ABBA? She was by the way, I looked on their website. Since Frida isn’t singing disco hits anymore, this is what she does to pass the time….

Today she leads a low-key life, devoting herself to charity work. However, Frida has guested on records by other artists: her most recent recording was the lead vocal on the song ‘The Sun Will Shine Again’, included on former Deep Purple keyboard player Jon Lord’s 2004 album Beyond The Notes.

Right. I'm going to be honest, I have no idea who any of these people are? Deep Purple? Yeah, moving on….

Fact number two is something I do know! On this day, back in 1980, Blondie had the number song. Any guesses on the song? I’ll wait……………………………………..
No, you’re all wrong, its Tide is High. This happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time. In closing, let’s all take a minute to sway back and forth to Tide is High. You might not know this but Blondie is a 12 time Grammy winner. Yup, saw it on YouTuc

Happy Friday Blogger World!

I was a HUGE Blondie fan! I had their tape and played it over and over (probably ruining it!).

"oooh ooh oooh woooah!" ;-)

Have a great Friday!

Ooo, I have a Blondie CD!!!

Wow, I was a bit too excited about that, I think.

One of the radio stations here plays The Tide Is High right before the Bama games. (Because we're the Crimson Tide, if that wasn't clear.) But really, it just makes me think of the beach.

Since I'm a fan of ABBA and Blondie, both (seriously...who is Deep Purple?!) -- this is great!
